1,000,000 metres in a week!

Post by Tony Cook » May 12th, 2021, 6:16 am

Not me but a fellow Pilot Gig rowing mate. Dorset Indoor Rowing organised a virtual race around the South West Coastal Footpath ‘Conquer the Cape’ starting on 1 May. The idea being people would log their weekly progress. Rob Horrell from North Devon did the 723,000 metres in 4 days, 23 hours and 52 minutes - just over 144,000 metres a day!!
He then went on to complete the round 1 million metres - I think he did it within a week but may have strayed over. Not been able to confirm it.

That is an exceptionally disgusting idea, no matter how slow you pace it. I have nothing but total admiration for that level of suffering and dedication.

That's 10-12 hours of rowing a day, for 7 days straight.
No thanks :D
