New Team Mate:
We have been joined by a new team mate Matt Collard, who completed a marathon row in November in 2:58:33.9 for the Princes Trust charity (his justgiving page is here if you want to contribute).
He is currently in training for his next marathon on the 6th April 2014, the same day as the Oxford Cambridge Boat Race. The company Matt works for are the primary sponsor of the race, so he is hoping to complete the marathon at the Boat Race itself alongside the Thames (details to be confirmed nearer the time). Matt suggested we could think of an idea for a team challenge or event on the day and he would love to have some fellow ETT'ers around for support or to take part in the challenge in some way too - any ideas team mates?
LTA Indoor Rowing World Record Attempt:
Talking of rowing challenges, Matt Brewster is attempting to set a new world record in the LTA adaptive category over 100k which he is rowing in aid of Sport Relief at Coombe Dean School in Plymouth on 21st March 2014, he has set up a page on www.justgiving.com/matt100k if you would like to support him.
On day five of the challenge and we are in 13th position out of 254 world-wide teams and have collectively rowed nearly a million metres in five days.
Keep rowing hard ETT'ers!
