Row 100,000 Meters

Ever heard of the Concept2 Holiday Challenge?  The challenge, officially organized by Concept2, is to row 100,000 meters from November 22 to 11:59 p.m. ET December 24.

The organized and coached program at Roots is coached by none other than our very own Lauren Rubini.  For those of you who don’t know Lauren or haven’t yet taken an erg class, check out her bio and background below!
The program consists of 4 coached workouts, access to the regularly scheduled erg classes, additional erging times for athletes who sign-up for the challenge, and programmed workouts for the athletes to complete on their own.
DATES: November 25th to December 24th at midnight
  • Four coached workouts led by Lauren – These sessions meet on Sundays at 9:00am beginning November 25th, and will consist of 6-8,000 meter workouts. If the 9:00am slot fills up we will add a 10:00am option.  Please note, the December 2nd session will take place at 7am.
  • Additional opportunities each week to accumulate more meters toward your 100,000 meter goal (Mondays at 11:30am and Wednesdays at 6am and 7pm in addition to all scheduled Open Shop hours). This shop time is available only to athletes participating in the challenge and can be used only for the purpose of rowing. There will be two programmed workouts each week for athletes to utilize while erging on their own.
  • Access to the regularly scheduled ERG WODs.
About Lauren
Lauren Rubini began rowing on the east coast in 7th grade. She raced for her local high school, T.C. Williams (Remember the Titans), in Alexandria, Virginia as well as at the Olympic Festival and Junior World Championships. She attended Boston University on a full athletic scholarship for rowing while pursuing her dream of making the US National Team. During her time at Boston University, she was invited to both National Team Sweep and Sculling training centers.  Lauren also participated in the infamous erg competition (infamous if you spend and enjoy time on the erg and want to take it to the next level), C.R.A.S.H.- B. Sprints in Boston qualifying for the women’s open final event. Lauren continues to race in both sweep and sculling events and has coached at all levels. Currently, Lauren coaches for Boulder Community Rowing.  She is looking forward to putting time in on the erg off the water with fellow Roots Crew (double meaning…) members.  Lauren thinks erging is kick ass!
