The annual rowing race for runners will be taking place on January 15th in Teddington. It is hosted by the Teddington Skiff club who will also assist with offering a couple of training sessions in the skiff’s, as well as provide the cox on the day. There are three categories mens, ladies and mixed with 2 rowers and 1 cox per boat. The race takes place on the river, no it’s not held in a warm gym on rowing machines, and is what I would consider a sprint as it’s over in approximately 3 minutes.
Last year we entered 2 ladies teams and managed to achieve 1st and 2nd, and everybody who took part as well as those who came to spectate had a great time. If anybody is interested please let me (Kate Hancock) know, I believe we have 1 or 2 ladies teams but it would be great if we could also enter one or both of the mens or mixed categories.
