A couple of months ago I bought a Concept2 indoor rowing machine and I am using it regularly, especially when I don’t feel like running but still want to do an intensive work-out. It seems I am not the only one in Shanghai that likes to row, because a few days ago I came across the 1st Shanghai Indoor Rowing Charity Challenge. This race will be held on Saturday November 13, 2010 from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Shanghai Sharks Practice Facility, Bai Se Road No.1333 (???1333?).
There will both be individual and team races, the individual races are over 500 and 1000 meters and the relays are 4 * 500 meters and 10 * 3 minutes. You can sign up until November 8 at http://www.bohdi.com.cn/concept2challenge.html. All proceeds will go to the charity Roots & Shoots
