We’re implementing a new community activity monthly here at CFE!  A “BOX challenge”….meaning that as a whole gym, Coach is challenging us to complete a new crazy task each month!  Come on comrades!  Let’s do it!!!

This months challenge is:

Row the English Channel!

That’s 350 miles which in rower terms means 700,000 meters!  On the right side of the whiteboard there’s a spot to start tracking your mileage!  And NO, your rowing wods regularly do NOT count!

The English Channel (French: la Manche, Breton: Mor Breizh, Cornish: Mor Bretannek), often referred to simply as the Channel, is an arm of the Atlantic Ocean that separates southern England from northern France, and joins the North Sea to the Atlantic. It is about 560 km (350 mi) long and varies in width from 240 km (150 mi) at its widest to 34 km (21 mi) in the Strait of Dover.[1] It is the smallest of the shallow seas around the continental shelf of Europe, covering an area of some 75,000 km2 (29,000 sq mi).
