Crazy In Love Erg Marathon

Sunday, Feb 16, 2025, 8 am CST

You have to be Crazy In Love to erg 42,195 meters! For those who want to test the depth of their devotion to indoor rowing, we’ve got a virtual event for you! Row 42,195 meters (a marathon) in 24 hrs.


Entry Fee Options:

  • Full Entry $25 – All race merch and media
  • Speed Pass Entry $15 – Race access only

Entry fees are the same for US and International racers and include shipping and handling.

Racing live via the ErgZone app:

The 42,195 meters will be broken into 4000m intervals without any scheduled rest in between, but YOU MAY REST!

If you want to take a break, stand up, hydrate and stretch, go to the bathroom, etc., simply put your handle in the cradle and leave your phone connected to your monitor. If your phone is connected to the event via ErgZone, it will not time out. It doesn’t matter when you take a break or for how long. If you need to hit the bathroom at 22,315 meters, get up and go! Just don’t take your phone with you. Leave your phone connected to the event exactly where it is.

Once you stop rowing, your flywheel will spin down to a stop, but the elapsed time will continue as you take your break. When you return, sit down and start rowing.

Manual Result Reporting:

If you are competing offline independently, you must enter your Crazy In Love Erg Marathon results into the ErgZone app within 24 hours of finishing the event to appear on the leaderboard.

If you decide, “THAT’S ENOUGH!” and break up with your erg and this event, send us a screenshot at of how far you made it. You still get your can coolie, AND you’ll get a Dear John letter as well!
