What is an Erg-a-thon and how will it work

An Erg-a-thon is like a walk-a-thon but we use our rowing machines, located under the Montgomery Inn Boathouse, instead of walking.

The event will be 4 hours of rowing, either in teams or solo, with the goal of going as far as possible in the allotted time. The average team or solo rower can go anywhere from 35,000 to 45,000 meters during the 4 hours. To keep the rowers occupied movies are played with a projector.


How to get involved

There are a number of ways that friends, family and alumni can get involved to make this event a success

  • Donate per meter
    • For this method pick an individual rower or team that you would like to sponsor and an amount per meter that you would like to donate. Remember the average team or solo athlete can cover 35,000 to 45,000 over the 4 hours.
  • Donate a lump sum
    • With this option you can donate one sum either in the name of a rower you would like to sponsor or for the club.
  • Participate in the event!!
    • We invite all friends, family and alumni to come join the fun! You can participate in the rowing or you can show up and watch the movies while cheering on the team.
