How you can show your support

Entering a Team

We invite all students and staff to unite and enter a team to help EUBC towards our target of 2020 miles and £3000 for Sport Relief. 

  1. Assemble your team of four 
  2. Book a time slot to complete 1 mile each in the Dame Katherine Grainger Gym at the Pleasance on Tuesday 10 March and donate the £20.00 (£5 per person) entry fee. 100% of which will be added towards our fundraising target


More about Row Britannia 

Row Britannia is a team 2020 mile rowing challenge, to be completed between 12th November 2019 and 13th March 2020, to raise £3,000 for Sport Relief. We have invited every University and College in the UK to register a team and have extended the invitation to the UK Fire & Rescue Service, Royal Navy and British Rowing. If every UK University and College registers just 1 team and hits that target, they would collectively raise almost £1.5m for Sport Relief! In addition to raising vital funds, the positive awareness of Mental Health, Fitness and Wellbeing that they would raise within their communities could be extraordinary. Please raise whatever you can, it is a fantastic cause. We hope that you will take on the Row Britannia challenge.
