It's almost time for Concept 2's most popular challenges! The 2014 Holiday Challenge begins November 27 (US Thanksgiving) and ends December 24 (Christmas Eve). For every person who rows at least 100k during the challenge, Concept2 will donate $.02 per kilometer (1000 meters) to your choice of the following organizations:
- World Food Programme
- Salvation Farms
Once you get beyond 100k, we'll donate $.04 per kilometer. (Note: For kids and adaptive participants, the $.04 rate will take effect at 50k).

But, Remember your Fitness Goals
Your current goals should determine if this challenge is right for you. To put it in perspective, to get 100k in a month is the equivalent to doing four 5K's a week!
If your goals is strength, speed, power and an increased CrossFit Total, this may not be the challenge for you.
If your goal is improved endurance, stamina, and weight loss, this may be a great program for you to try!
