The World Erg Challenge runs every year from March 15–April 15. Get a team together and see how many meters you can complete!
Each team completes as many meters as they can collectively between 12:00 a.m. March 15 and 11:59 p.m. April 15.
Indoor rower, SkiErg and BikeErg meters only (no on water/on snow meters please). You can combine meters from each machine to reach the challenge goal. Note: BikeErg meters are counted as half when applied to the challenge.
This is a team challenge. You must belong to a team to participate. This is not the same as your club affiliation in your profile. See "Information for Team Members" below.
Teams must consist of at least two (2) people. Team members will not appear on challenge boards until at least two people are taking part.
Important deadline: Complete the following tasks by March 30 23:59 GMT (19:59 ET)or your team will not be enrolled in the challenge and/or your team members' meters will not count for the challenge:
All team members must be added to your team.
Team members who have their own logbooks must indicate in their logbooks that they are actively participating in the current challenge. (See the Team member page for more information.)
Meters must be entered online. Because of the large number of participants in the challenge, we cannot accept results via phone, fax or email. We suggest that any members who have access to the internet create their own profile so that they can enter their own results.
Meters completed each week should be entered no later than midnight on Friday of that week. This works on the honor system. It makes it fair and fun for everyone if you can watch the progress of the teams that you are competing against.
Concept2 reserves the right to ask for proof of meter totals if they seem suspect and to disqualify any team from the challenge who we feel is not participating honestly.
Deadline for entering meters: April 18 23:59 GMT (19:59 ET).
