Welcome To Llandaff Rowing Club

9,038km challenge – Cardiff to Wuhan

Due to Covid-19 pandemic and the current lockdown, we are unable to train at the club – doing our part with social distancing and unnecessary travel. In order to keep up our fitness, we are using our daily exercise to stay fit, ready for when the regatta season starts back.

A group from the masters’ and seniors’ squads, have set up a challenge and are using thier time exercising to raise money for two charities ‘Noah’s Ark‘ – the children’s hospital for Wales and ‘Refuge‘ – For women and children against domestic voilence.

The challenge is to make up the distance from Cardiff to Wuhan, China, where it is believed the pandemic first occured. The distance is 9,038km, and the group have decided to do this distance through, rowing (ergo – rowing machine), running and cycling.

The challenge started at the beginning of May, and the group has so far travelled the distance of 7382km (24/05/2020) and have currently raised £1,665. In two weeks, we are getting there, but we still have a long way to go…and we’re hoping that you’ll help us by donating to either or both of these charities.
