Amazing August/Row 20212021-08-13T10:17:05-04:00

Amazing Row / Amazing August!

We are excited to be able to offer a hybrid event this year, with both an in-person single-day Amazing Row (for vaccinated participants) and a multi-day Amazing August. The Amazing Row will take place on Saturday, August 21st (rain date Sunday, August 22nd), and will be a round-trip 26k between RBC boathouse and Pittsford boathouse.  There will also be an on-line silent auction, and a party/picnic following the Amazing Row.  For Amazing August, your participation will be to cover the same distance (26k) as the Amazing Row in whatever manner you can, between August 1st and August 21st.  You can erg, row, run, walk, swim, bike, kayak, whatever works for you. 

Amazing Auction now open!

Silent auction is now open, and will close the evening of August 20th.  Bid early, bid often!
