Loughborough Boat Club row a Marathon in aid of LOROS

On Sunday 18th September an LBC crew emerged from the clubhouse ready to embark on one of their biggest rowing challenges they have faced this year.

With the unfortunate discovery that the Boston Marathon had been cancelled, due to un-rowable conditions, the crew were in dismay. However, the crew where not deterred by these unfortunate circumstances and took it upon themselves to organise their own event.

With spirits high and the charity funds exceeding their target of £750, for LOROS, the crew took to the water at 8:15 on Sunday 18th September. Rowing for a nonstop 5 hours the crew reached a remarkable 54.8km that was accumulated by the crew’s lengths of the River Soar.

The Crew would also like to take this opportunity to thank everybody for their help and support over the last few weeks with both the training and all of the donations received. You have all made a real difference to help support of local charity of LOROS.
