Row Britannia 2020

Row Britannia is an inclusive (adaptive sport) mental health, fitness and wellbeing challenge by The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT), for teams throughout the UK to raise vital funds and positive awareness.

Row Britannia

Raising money for Mental Health through Sport relief

We will be participating in a nationwide campaign called Row Britannia, aimed at raising money for Mental Health through Sport Relief. As part of the challenge students and staff need to row a total of 2020 miles. We are hoping to raise a target of £3000 during the course of the challenge.  All Universities have been invited to take part in the challenge and will work towards raising a target of over £1.5 million for sport relief.

No matter how you choose to contribute to the challenge, either by rowing, donating, or just reaching out to your friends to make sure they're okay, you can make a real positive difference.

Sponsor our rowers and donate using our our central page.

Get Involved

No matter how you get involved everything helps.

We will have rowing machines dotted around campuses from the week commencing 2 March. We encourage everyone to get involved. If you simply want to row at the gym, please record your distance by taking a photograph of your distance rowed and send this to us via email Or post your photograph on your social media using the hashtag #Row4NTU and don't forget to tag @NTUsport

Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race: Sign up to the challenge between the March 2 - 6. Completing the 44,615 steps across one week is equivalent to walking the boat race each day of the week and will mean a 50p donation is made on your behalf.
