The Challenge Series is a league, ranking and monthly challenge all rolled into one, with the emphasis on particpation rather than competition. We're now into our 6th year of the Challenge Series with 87,925 miles rowed since it started in September 2008.
There are 9 different challenges - one each month between September and May. Once registered you can enter as many results for the challenges as you like before the respective deadlines but only the last one entered before the closing date will be saved. You can also enter you total metres rowed for each month and be entered into one of three additional prize draws each month.
