Row Britannia for Sports Relief

Reading time: < 1 minute
At the beginning of March staff and students joined Edinburgh University Boat Club as they took on Row Britannia, a nationwide campaign to promote positive mental wellbeing through keeping active.

A large room of people on rowing machines.

The team pledged to row 2020 miles in 20 hours and 20 minutes to raise money for Sport Relief.

It was a huge success with the University raising nearly £3,000 – huge congratulations to everyone who took part.
