Athlete Briefing:

Teams of 3 athletes will compete in a 9,000 meter row.

This workout begins with one athlete seated on the rower, the handled stowed and the monitor set to countdown from 9,000 meters.

At the call of 3...2...1...GO!, the first athlete will reach down and begin rowing. Once the first athlete rows 1,000 meters, athlete 2 will switch with athlete 1 and row 1,000 meters, followed by athlete 3 switching with athlete 2 and rowing 1,000 meters. Athletes will continue rowing relay style for 2 sets of a 500 meter row for each athlete, followed by 4 sets of a 250 row.  

Every second counts in this workout. The team’s score will be the time it takes to complete the 9,000 meter row and the monitor reaches 0 meters. Time will be recorded in full seconds.  If a team finishes in 30:32:07, their score will be 30:32.  There is no time cap for this challenge.
