Cantabrigian Rowing Club have finished top of the pile in a national competition.

They took part in the six-week Strava Boat Club challenge to see which club can clock the most hours of exercise per athlete.

Runs, cycles and indoor erg sessions could be logged.

Cantabs had a total of 333 athletes take part, registering 2,454 hours for an average hours per athlete of 7.37.

They were helped by Chris Howard, who is walking the coast of the UK for Children in Need but currently at home during lockdown; Rebecca Bennewith who commutes to work as a junior doctor; Gill Cooper, who is voluteering at a vaccination centre; and Simon Durrant, of the Motley Crew.

The top contributor was Evelyn Svingen, who was doing lots of training whilst writing up her PhD, and Christina Woolner made a solid contribution despite being due to give birth.

The training included weekly virtual circuit sessions with Milosz Wrobel of the Light Blue Clinic, who coached erg sessions and long stints on spin bikes.

Cantabs won a prize from Henley Hampers.
