Following the postponement of the 2020 Canary Wharf Rowathon, we’re thrilled to announce a new date of
THURSDAY 24 JUNE 2021
EAST WINTERGARDEN, CANARY WHARF, LONDON E14 5NX
Come and take on a challenging indoor rowing event within the unique surroundings of East Wintergarden, in the heart of Canary Wharf.
“You have hit on something very special here. The most perfect venue for this event! It could be one of the best events outside of the British Championship”
Ian McNuff, Olympic Rower
The Canary Wharf Rowathon is back! Brought to you by Hope and Homes for Children and proudly supported by Canary Wharf Group, St. James’s Place, Concept 2 and British Rowing, the Rowathon features a number of team and individual challenges throughout the day.
TEAM 2KM CHALLENGE
As a team of four, you’ll row side-by-side on four linked rowing machines. Your team's overall boat speed and finishing time are generated by your combined effort.
Raise £1,140 or more between you, and help to rescue a child from an orphanage and reunite them with their own family, where they belong.
Registration fee: £40
Minimum fundraising: £1,140
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, 10km is nothing to be laughed at. Especially when you do it against the clock.
Raise £250 or more, and you will help us to trace the birth families of five different children, needlessly isolated in orphanages—the first crucial step in reuniting them back with their family.
Registration fee: £20
Minimum fundraising: £250
HALF MARATHON CHALLENGE (21.1KM)
New for 2020, this exciting addition is perfect for those who want a serious challenge.
Raise £600 or more, and you will help to keep a vulnerable family together. We can keep children out of orphanages and make sure they grow up in the love and protection of their own family.
Registration fee: £30
Minimum fundraising: £600
MARATHON CHALLENGE (42.2KM)
The ultimate challenge and a gruelling test of endurance, this is the race for those who want to push their own boundaries to the limit.
Raising £1,680 or more will help to build a new family, giving children a place to belong and someone to love them. For a child who has no birth family to look after them, there is always a better solution than an orphanage.
Registration fee: £50
Minimum fundraising: £1,680
Prizes awarded to the fastest rower/team in each category and the rower or team who fundraises the most.

Hope and Homes for Children works across the world to keep families together, reunite families, and build new families, so every child can grow up in the care and support of a loving family.
If you believe every child belongs in a family, join us as we consign orphanages to history. Together, we can end this global crisis in our lifetime. Read more about the harm orphanages do, and the work of Hope and Homes for Children, at hopeandhomes.org
