Crewroom Strava Club: Boat Race Challenge

Need a little motivation to get off the sofa this January? Fear not, we have a plan!

At Crewroom HQ, we often find ourselves looking out the window and taking in the view of the Thames when we need a little inspiration, with everything from new product ideas to what we might fancy for lunch. So, when we were hatching a plan to make the most of our daily exercise allowance during lockdown – the tideway, as always, floated our boat.

Putney is our home and it’s also home to a famous little Boat Race you may have heard of which covers a distance of 4 miles and 374 yards – all the way from Putney Bridge to Chiswick Bridge. So, what better inspiration for a new challenge!

It's the distance that counts folks and you can complete it on land or water, somewhere that's local to you and only as part of your daily exercise allowance. The important thing is to always stay local and stay safe...

Crewroom Strava Club: Boat Race Challenge

Here’s how it works…

  1. Complete 4 miles and 374 yards in one continuous exercise route either by foot, bike, paddleboard, canoe or scull – basically, self-propelled!
  2. We’re in lockdown, so although this is the distance you need to cover, make sure you stay local to complete the challenge, wherever that may be, always adhering to social distancing and government guidelines. Just to be clear, you should complete 4 miles and 374 yards somewhere that's local to you, it's the distance that counts.
  3. Join the Crewroom Strava Club here and log your route/distance before 5pm on 31st January 2021.
  4. Share your Strava routes with us on Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to tag us @crewroom and use these hashtags: #crewmunity #enjoytheelements
  5. Every participant who logs their journey on the Crewroom Strava Club will be sent a Crewroom ProJump Skipping Rope worth £15.
  6. And, if that’s not enough, every participant will be entered into a prize draw* to win a winter kit bundle which includes a North West Hoodie, Fuel Winter Leggings and Elements Baselayer.
  7. Stay local, stay safe and have fun.
That’s it, simples. Get a wiggle on and keep us posted!
