James Cracknell beats British rowing record in charity challenge for Headway

Mon 15 Jun 2020

Headway’s Vice President James Cracknell has claimed the British record for rowing a marathon indoors in his charity challenge for Headway.

On Saturday 13th June, James took to his rowing machine to cover 26.2 miles, all to raise money for Headway – the brain injury association.

The Olympic gold medallist set a new record of 2 hours 30 minutes and 37 seconds and raised an incredible £9,737 along the way.

In a post on Twitter, James said: “‪I want to give a heartfelt thanks for people’s support of Headway & me yesterday. ‪Setting and achieving a goal & the support I’ve had has given my self-confidence a lift after coping with divorce, family and work over the last 2 months. Thank you.”
