In London at the Copper Box Arena,  

You'll only get wet from the sweat down your back as you and your team, of 8, race relay style for 72km, the length of the Tidal river Thames. The event takes part at the same time and venue as one of the largest indoor rowing events on the planet – LYR’s very own NJIRC.

You'll be joined by over 2,000 young people from all backgrounds also discovering the joy and challenge of indoor rowing racing. With live results relayed on big screens and linking up competitors across the UK and the US, the event comes to life with hundreds of racers all pitting themselves to reach their best.

NJIRC is one of biggest and most inclusive rowing event in the world, you'll have never seen anything like this!

The event celebrates the work done by LYR, the charity behind the event, and you'll be fundraising to help us use this great sport and the life skills it nurtures to help more young people find the tools to achieve their potential. Rowing matters!

We're excited to also be growing the event to a second location in Leeds on the same day - March 3rd 2023 which will give us the chance to work with even more companies just like you.
