King’s College rowing challenge 2020 – 7×7 – 7 marathons in 7 days

After the 100k challenge last year, Jim Potts (Former Director of Sport at King’s and now at St Patrick’s College in Queensland) and I set a challenge for 2020 – to row 7 marathons in 7 consecutive days. This week we completed the challenge and would like to thank those who have joined Jim and I at various times both in Queensland and Auckland for the past seven mornings.

In Auckland special thanks to Daryl Williams (every morning), Allan Robertson, Dan Rattray, Brendan Boreham, Scott Palmer, Onosai Auvaa,  Mal Bish, and Steve Davison who have joined me on the erg. Also those that have dropped by in support and the rowing club for their encouragement. Photo from Day 3 – I am at the end with the white cap.


 The idea behind the event is to raise money for Friedreich’s ataxia research –  link below:
