Owner Charles Anderson and Crew Member Stephen Ebbett completed a grueling 1,000,000 m row on Sunday June 1st, 2014 after 89 hours, 19 minutes, 9.8 seconds to set two World Records on the Indoor Rower.

They nearly doubled the previous record for the†Longest Continual Row†;(previously 50 hours and set the bar for the†Fastest Million Meters†previous unset). Both were in the 30-39 Menís Heavyweight Tandem category, and required that they keep the machine in motion for the entire time.

The community came out in force to support the event with friends, family, and rowers from around Atlanta dropping by, and messages sent from around the world as people from over 25 countries watched and commented on the World Record attempt which was streamed live online.
