The Event:

Teamwork conquers most things, including the cold and dark January, so get your team of 8 and get ready to run, cycle, row, or anything, the 346km of the River Thames over the event week: 24th to the 31st of January 2022. From home, the local gym, the office or walking the dog, together as a team or apart; this event has no boundaries. We bring you together on the LYR Arena, our event platform here. Sign up is free, and we ask for a minimum fundraise of £400 per team (£50pp). So when you build your team, don’t go for the fastest, find those who’ll need a team come the end of Jan and make a difference!

What to do:

o Gather your team of 8 together

o Raise £400 per team (£50pp)- the funds you raise will be split 50/50 between Wellbeing of Women and LYR

o Keep track of where you team is on the fundraising leader board

o Follow the race map and be the first team to cross the finish line!

About LRY:

Race the Thames funds our work into schools to reach the most disadvantaged and disconnected youth from mainstream sports in London and Leeds. Rowing instils vital life skills that we work on and enhance through a programme called Skills Builder. This provides a platform that helps to empower the young people we work with seeing the wider benefit. Because of the way we find the young people we work with around 5,000 in London who are 70% BAME, 50% Female, 12% SEND. For more information about LYR click here.
