The Annual Kenai Crewsers Rowing Club ‘IditaRow!’ Roworx Will Join In And Row And Race The Alaskan Huskies From Anchorage, AK To Nome

The Kenai Crewsers Rowing Club / Roworx Team ‘IDITAROW’ 2012 to begin Sunday March 4

Participants in the 2012 Iditarow will row on an erg (that’s an indoor rowing machine) in an attempt to cover the 1112 miles to Nome before the winning Iditarod dog team crosses the finish line. Hosted at the REZ, the Iditarow is a fundraiser for the Kenai Crewsers Rowing Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Participants in the Roworx 2012 ‘Iditarow’ will row on an erg in an attempt to cover the 1112 miles to Nome, Alaska before the winning Iditarod dog team crosses the finish line. This challenge is FREE and not part of Concept 2 however we will use the Concept 2 website in order to track your meters online and it will be hosted at the Roworx Warehouse And Boathouse locations. Roworx This Year Raised Money For The Kenai Crewsers Rowing Club And Donated A Check Of $140 To The Organization. We Look Forward To Participate Again With More Organized Teams Within The Roworx Affiliation And Have More Rowers Participate To Raise Even More Money!

Rules: Each team member will be allowed to row up to 60 minutes or the equivalent of 1 rowing class per day during the ‘Iditarow.’ Each rower must take two mandatory days of rest or we will drop the lowest amount of meters from your totals at the end of the challenge if you decide to row everyday.

Row Hard And Have Fun!

Since we row in beautiful Long Beach, Ca. I wanted you to all watch something I’ve found on the Internet and remind you that things could always be more challenging and interesting while rowing under extremely cold conditions 🙂  Very Funny!!!
