Centurion Challenge & Centurion Corporate Challenge

The Centurion Challenge and the Centurion Corporate Challenge; supporting the outreach rowing community by funding, empowering, and elevating the most valuable parts of this great sport.

The Centurion Challenge

Celebrate and support the transformative impact of rowing at local clubs around the UK. We aim to shine a light on the grassroots programmes that are established around the country.

Each selected club who elects a Centurion nominee who attempts to row a formidable 100km in one day. This epic challenge is the catalyst to engage local businesses to support their local centurion and associated outreach project. There are now 9 Centurions, listed on the right, who have gone above and beyond for the sport, and are recognised at Centurions.

The Centurion Corporate Challenge

Companies are invited to take part in a great office based team building event. We will send a rowing machine to your office, where you and your colleagues can train together. At the end of the month a team of around 20 people then take on the challenge to row 100km in a working day. Our coaches will be on hand to support you with technical advice and the funds raised will support the Active Row programme, LYR's national outreach programme.

The Centurion Challenge is not a race, it is a commitment to support your community by doing something extraordinary. Thank you to all our centurions!

LYR knows how valuable to sport of rowing is. We are dedicated to finding new, innovative and exciting ways to help grow and develop the sport, including helping add value to clubs' outreach programmes across the UK.
