ParticipAction Event

June 1st – 30th, 2021

Who’s ready to get moving?! This year the club will be hosting a ParticipAction event to keep everyone active as we eagerly await to get back on the water! Participants can complete activities individually or in teams. To keep things interesting, this will be a battle between the men and the women of the club – after all, who doesn’t like a friendly competition! Each week there will be a new theme to focus on: mobility, strength, cardio, and more! You will track your total active minutes in the training log to gain points for your team and win “medals” for yourself. Not good enough?? Post pictures of your workout on social media tagging @guelphrowingclub and @participaction to gain bonus points! Still need more?? At the end of each week, the most spirited team will receive even more bonus points – the more enthusiasm we see, the more points are awarded! 

Prizes will be given to the most active participants so get creative, keep safe, and let’s get moving GRC!
