Saturday’s All Day Row to support Clint Trial was a huge success! 17 teams participated in the event. One team was a single person team— former Trident athlete Steve Houde rowed virtually in his garage in Maine. The other teams were made up of a variety of athletes including Trial’s unit members, Trident athletes, friends and family of Trident and athletes from CrossFit PR Star in Chantilly. Many of the team members met for the first time on Saturday as there were individual rowers looking to join a team. Despite not knowing each other, teams came together to show their support for a patriot and his family. Athletes shared their gifts of time, money, dedication and patience as they rowed almost six hours. It was remarkable to watch the Trident community and others come together with such enthusiasm and grace.

Half way through the day, Chriss added a twist to the event when the assault bikes and ski-ergs were introduced! Teams could accumulate additional meters on the bike or ski-erg, but one team member needed to continue rowing. The meters were valued at 1.5x’s the erg meters. Athletes had the opportunity to add meters on the bike or ski-erg for an hour and again in the last hour of the event.

Athletes remained fueled during the event with donations from Whole Foods Pentagon City, Territory Foods and many treats from athletes and spectators. Bananas, frozen grapes and popsicles were favorites.

After tallying registration fees, online donations and cash donations, we were just $800 shy of our $10,000 goal. We made an announcement during the event and additional donations came in along with a generous donation from Trident’s John Crowder of Bradham Automotive. By Saturday afternoon we met our goal and since then have exceeded it. Thank you to everyone for your generosity!

Teams worked extremely hard on Saturday to earn as many meters as possible. It was a physical and mental challenge for everyone – some doubting they could even complete it. There was pain, discomfort and exhaustion but every team worked until the very end. Three teams collected the most meters:

  • 1st Place – CrossFit PR Star 187,797 meters
  • 2nd Place – FIDN 153,135 meters
  • 3rd Place – Nordic TC (Trident’s own!) 144,907 meters

The one man team, Steve Houde, rowed 56,435 meters.

Thank you to our friends at Lululemon Old Town, Misha’s Coffee and Kristine’s Touch Massage for providing prizes for the 1st Place team. The 1st Place team also went home with a Concept 2 erg. The top three teams received a bottle of whisky to celebrate.

Congratulations to the winning teams and to everyone who participated! And, thank you to everyone who contributed to the fundraiser for Clint Trial and his family. It’s an extraordinary example of caring and community.
