Adam storms the Boston Marathon

By rcrc1, Sep 24 2016 04:00PM

The annual marathon organised by Boston Rowing Club from Lincoln to Boston on the river Witham is the ultimate endurance challenge and not for the faint heated. There are a number of obstacles to overcome on the 31 mile course besides the obvious fatigue. A seven mile row, dense river weed sapping the energy, carry your boat around a lock, then a further 24 miles to the finish.

We had two entries from Royals in this years race, Peter Jarvis in Master H 1x and Adam Wilson in Masters G 1x. Peter finished in 4.46.37 hrs, second in his status and in a time only 5 seconds shy of the record set in 2002. Adam stormed the course in a new record of 4.09.19 hrs coming eleventh overall (yes that's all categories) and second fastest single sculler, beaten only by a Senior 1x. Adam giving him 40 years!

Well done Adam.
