Ski and Row in the Team 350 Challenge!

FasterSkierSeptember 19, 2009

The Team 350 Challenge is looking to collectively row and ski 350 million meters between September 21 and October 24 and we’d like your help to reach this goal.  This challenge is part of a global grassroots movement to raise awareness for the significance of 350 parts per million; the sustainable CO2 threshold in our atmosphere.  The current level is over 387 ppm and this number needs to fall for a safe climate future.  The United Nations is working on a global climate treaty that will be released later this Fall.  October 24th is the International Day of Climate Action, a significant day leading up to the release of this important treaty.  It’s a day to show worldwide support for strong policy that will create the change needed to get back on track.

Join the challenge and help us reach our goal of 350 million meters in the 35 days leading up to October 24.  Meters can be counted from skiing on snow, rollerskiing, skiing with the Concept2 SkiErg, rowing on water, and rowing with the Concept2 Indoor Rower.  Log your meters in the Concept2 Online Logbook, located at, where you can join the challenge and track our progress. Its free to use and the more participants the better!  Visit the Team 350 Challenge page (this page will be available on Monday, September 21st when the challenge begins) to see a running tally of Team 350’s progress during the challenge, individual meter honor boards, photos, stories, and more information about this event.  At the end of the challenge, all participants will be able to download a personalized certificate recognizing the number of meters contributed to the effort, will have access to commemorative t-shirts available for purchase with proceeds going to the 350 movement, and will be entered into a raffle with more prizes.  Be a part of the Team 350 Challenge and ski or row to keep our winters white!

To participate, first create a free Concept2 Online Logbook found at  Then on or after 9/21, go to your Logbook homepage and click on the Team 350 button to let us know that you want to participate.  Now all you have to do is ski or row, inside or outside, and log your meters in your Logbook!  AND spread the word about 350 so that more people will join and get the message!  The more participants the better!  Our collective progress toward the considerable goal of 350 million meters will be tracked at  For more information on the 350 campaign visit

The Team 350 Challenge is being organized by Concept2 with assistance from the Craftsbury Green Racing Project.
