A Marathon Success


TRC members Gloria O`Connor and Tania Lawlor have recently completed an epic Erg marathon.

They faced this incredible challenge with strength, determination, hours of training and plenty of positivity. They covered 42,207m under in 4 hours which is an incredible achievement!

As we have been unable to row on our canal throughout the winter months this gave Gloria and Tania plenty of opportunity to train.

Tralee Rowing Club Captain Heidi Giles said “In 12 weeks Gloria and Tania turned a suggestion from a fellow masters rower into an achievement. The two women were admiral in their consistent commitment, often starting lengthy erg sessions on dark evenings after they finished coaching juniors. Week in and week out they completed their program, and it was fantastic to see them achieve their goal and their time and persistence pay off”

We are all in awe of their stamina.
