Our story

On Sunday 29th January bold crews from Loughborough Boat Club will be joining London Youth Rowing’s global virtual event ‘Race the Thames’ to raise funds for Living Without Abuse.

Crews of 8 from both the Senior and Master’s squads will be rowing the length of the tidal Thames, 72km, each sharing a single rowing machine (ergometer). Each crew member will race 1km in succession until the 72km is complete. Crews are expected to take approximately 4.5 hours to complete the challenge.

The crews:

"It was the worst of Thames": Eleanor Dyson, Hannah Preston, Victoria Linsley, Jess Crichard, Ben Norman, Victoria Haines, Natalie LaValley and Nadine Storey.

"It was the best of Thames": Emily Quinton, Paul Corrigan, Phill Gunning, Allen Storey, Jonathan Cox, Jen Smith, Ellie Lilliott and Liv Young

There will be food available, a cake sale, bar and tombola for what promises to be a great social occasion as well as an endurance challenge for the crews.

In addition to supporters from the club and LWA, the invitation is open for anyone who wishes to cheer the competitors on plus find out more about Loughborough Boat Club and Living Without Abuse. The event starts at 11.30 and is set to conclude around 16.30, minds and muscles willing!
