Hospiscare supporter breaks world record!


After a gruelling 24 hours of rowing on 21 June, Neil Hitt set a new world record.

His 279,242m row (about 175 miles) has been officially confirmed as a new individual 24-hour record in the 50-59 heavyweight age group by Concept2. He broke the previous record by 1,013m.

21 years after rowing the Atlantic Ocean in boat number 21 named Hospiscare, Neil decided to attempt to break a world record and raise funds for Hospiscare and Cancer Research at the same time

To be able to beat the record he could only allow himself a 3 minute break every hour - the rest of the time he had to keep pulling on the handle or he would fall behind the punishing schedule he set.

Working with Exeter University, it was calculated that he would burn a massive 17,000 calories over the 24 hours, taking over 30,000 strokes and no doubt raising a few blisters.

Neil has been training specifically for this for 9 months and is raising sponsorship money for his chosen charities Hospiscare and Cancer Research UK. 


Congratulations Neil on setting a new World Record!
