AoC Sport Introducing campaign: Indoor Rowing

18 October 2021

AoC Sport Introducing Indoor Rowing

We are pleased to introduce indoor rowing as the first part of the AoC Sport Introducing campaign with dedicated information for colleges on how to get staff and students involved.

British Rowing have set up a free Virtual Rowing Challenge for colleges where staff and students can compete against one another or represent their college in a 500m individual sprint challenge or a 4,989km row across the Atlantic on indoor rowing machines.

Student 500 metre Challenge

Test your speed and see how you compare against other college participants and friends on the leaderboards. Once you have submitted your entry, AoC Sport will send you a link with details of how to log your time so you can get started with the challenge. This form should be completed by the individual signing up.

Row the Atlantic Team Challenge

For the Atlantic Row challenges, you can do as much or as little as you like at any one time. We will keep track of your accumulative progress on a map so you can pick up where you left off. Can you be the first college to get across the Atlantic Ocean? This should be completed by a staff member initially who can then get students involved.

How colleges can get involved

For more information about how to sign up to the virtual challenge and for links to British Rowing resources, visit our dedicated indoor rowing webpage.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more about how your college can get involved, please email

We will be adding new sports regularly onto our AoC Sport Introducing page, with new sports programmes and organisations that you can set up at your college, with key information and supporting documents that you can use to set up sessions at your college.
