Bare Hill Rowing Ergathon 2016

Our Goal:
This year’s Ergathon goal is to raise $20,000 for new equipment. In rowing, you can have the most talented athletes but if your equipment doesn’t fit or work well, it’s hard to train properly and win races. Some of our boats are 10+ years old and must be replaced. Plus, in order to provide every rower the chance to participate, we simply need more seats which means more boats.

On June 1, BHRA will hold its annual Ergathon. Our varsity and novice athletes will gather on the Harvard Common and each will row a 5K on the rowing machines (aka ERGs). As a whole, the team will challenge itself to row 500 kilometers (280 miles) during this five hour event. So come down and cheer us on or support us from afar by sponsoring a rower!

Who We Are:
Bare Hill Rowing Association (BHRA) engages 104 youth from the Harvard and Acton-Boxborough high schools in the sport of rowing. 

  • We are a public high school club that receives NO funding from either school or from the towns
  • We buy our boats used, but the costs are still high ($10,000 - $25,000 for an eight-rower boat)

Thank You!

Thank you to our dedicated supporters from Ergathon 2015!  With your help, we funded a “hoop barn,” where we can store our boats for the winter. A sponsorship of any amount gets a hand-written Thank You Postcard from your rower!
