January 2024 BARC Distance Challenge Results

We are off to a good start in 2024 despite the bad weather we've had in January. 36 BARCers found their way to the lake during the month, and they logged a total of 1642 kilometers,68K more than what was logged in January last year, but a far cry from the 2855K that was logged in December when so many rowers were trying to get to the magic 1000K for the year. Bob Jones was once again the winner with 191K. Udara Tennekoon was 2nd with 87 kilometers. Anne Bertelsmann was 3rd with 81K, Hannes Hofer and Jared Null shared 4th place with 80K, and Andy Chen rounded out the Top 5 with 76K. 11 rowers rowed 1000K or more for the year; that is a new record. Also, a total of 28789 kilometers were logged, the most since 2015.

The top 5 for the year are:
1. Bob Jones 191K
2. Udara Tennekoon 87K
3. Anne Bertelsmann 81K
4. Hannes Hofer 80K
4. Jared Null 80K
5. Andy Chen 76K

Starting in 2006, BARC rowers have voluntarily recorded their daily rowing distance in the “BARC Distance Rowing Challenge” rowing ledger at the boathouse. In this voluntary, friendly competition, those who row the greatest distance (e.g. Top 5) are recognized on a monthly basis, by way of posts to this section of our web site. On an annual basis, those rowers who row one million (or more) meters (1000+ kilometers or 621+ miles), over the past year, are recognized and awarded a BARC Distance Challenge Award, typically at our annual meeting. The awards vary by year, from plaques to BARC-inscribed beer mugs! All results, for all years, are available below.
