Sheffield septuagenarian to row 100km for five great charities

Richard Campos goes all out to row into record books


On Saturday 21st May 2022, soon-to-be 70-year-old Richard Campos will be attempting to break the world record for rowing 100km on an indoor rowing machine to raise money for five great causes.

Richard will be completing more than 10,000 strokes in his effort to break the record (Seven hours and fifty-eight minutes), which has stood for more than 10 years.

Richard has a personal connection with every charity he’s rowing for – Antenatal Results and Choices (ARC), Huntington’s Disease Association (HDA), Links Sports Trust, Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) and Sheffield Young Carers (SYC) – and he’s determined to do them all proud. The challenge is taking place on Saturday 21st May at Graves Health and Sports Centre, and each charity will be there to cheer him on – and take turns to row alongside him!
