Now our longest running event, the Windermere Row is one of the toughest but most enjoyable St Gemma’s Hospice challenges. The event has raised over £1.13 million since 1998. Teams of varying sizes (and abilities!) take to the Lake, come rain or shine, and race their way past the checkpoints along either a 10 or 21 mile route to victory. Surrounded by the most beautiful Lake District scenery, and with fancy dress and playful camaraderie strongly encouraged, this event has been attracting veteran captains and novice first mates to the lake for over 36 years.
This year there are 4 and 6 people boats available. The 10 mile row will take place on Saturday 29th June you and your team can choose to set off between 8:30-9:30am or 12:30-1:30pm. The 21-mile row will take place on Sunday 30th June, with a starting time between 8:30-9:30am. You can select this on the online registration form.
*Please note, there are now only 4 man boats available for both the 10-mile afternoon slot on Saturday 29th June and the 21 mile row on Sunday 30th June.*
To take part in the event there is a £10 per person deposit which is required for us to hire the rowing boats. We also ask that each person raises a minimum of £90 in sponsorship which will go towards providing patient care at the Hospice.
