Aberdeen Fours and Small Boats Heads + Hazel's Marathon Row

posted by Roy Sinclair - 16 Nov 2010, 2:41 p.m.

In preparation for the Aberdeen Fours and Small Boats Heads this weekend, Inverness member Hazel Smith undertook a Marathon Row at Bannatyne's Health Club, Inverness in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Scotland Special Needs Action Project.

Along with three others, two of whom were on running machines for the 26 plus miles and one cyclist who travelled a distance of 100 miles in 4 hours 44 minutes, Hazel did extremely well to cover the metric marathon distance of 42.195 kilometres on a Concept 2 indoor rowing machine in the excellent time of 3 hours 17 minutes and 46.1 seconds, which was marginally outside the world record in her age category.

Hazel intends to make a full recovery after her efforts to join with other club members who will represent the club at the Aberdeen Head races being staged on the tidal waters of the River Dee in Aberdeen. Members race in womens coxed fours and quadruple sculls events on the Saturday and in mens coxless pairs, mens and womens double and single sculls events on the Sunday.
