The Row-a-Fun Challenge

Next May 2019, we invite you and your colleagues to take part in an exciting workplace challenge, where you can get fit, have fun and raise some funds for charity, with The Soma Leo Foundation Row-a-Fun.

We'll be providing all participating companies with a rowing machine for the whole of May, encouraging you to row as far as you can in a month, competing against other local businesses.

Teams will consist of up to five rowers, and you can enter multiple teams. Metres and kilometres can be rowed at any time that suits, but all must be done on the allocated rowing machine. Each team's progress will be tracked with a league table published here, inspiring the competitive spirit!

Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third, as well as for the team that raises the most money. We'll also be running fun, one-off challenges and you can run your own in-house events.

At the end of the month we'll bring all of the teams together for a closing event, prize-giving ceremony and some fun final races.

Entry Fee and Fundraising

The entry fee is £100 for each team, and it's hoped that each team will raise a minimum of £500. A Virgin Money Giving page will be set up for each team, which will be linked to the main event web page.


We'll be sharing your progress and successes across social media and here on this website. Plus, you can share your own stories and photos of your events using the hashtag #BeOarsome. We'll also be inviting local publications to get involved too!

How to take part
