Virtus Sport

Virtus is delighted to launch the Global Challenge Series – a new series of online or virtual events to support opportunities for athletes to remain connected to their sport.

The Rowing Challenge series is open to all Virtus athletes and we will be posting a new workload/challenge here every 3 weeks.


The leaderboard will appear here shortly.

Workload/Challenge 1 – “the Virtus 500 meter challenge”:

This isn’t your typical 500m sprint, this is the Virtus 500m challenge which includes an extra 100m to get the series started!
All rowers must row 600m continuously. Your time over the final 500m is what counts.
Points will be awarded for the fastest 500m time.
Rowers using a Concept 2:
– Set the monitor to intervals variable > distance > 100m > zero rest > distance > 500m > check box when done.
– Open stroke rate (rower choice)
– Drag factor/ damper setting (rower choice)
Rowers not using a Concept 2 row 600m and submit a screen shot of your final time.
Submit your times via the online form above no later than 11.59pm (GMT) on 29th October 2020.
