40+ Teams. 1,000,000 Meters. 1 Day

Our purpose is to raise money and awareness for GallantFew, a nonprofit supporting our military community in transition and reintegration into civilian society. The Million Meter Row brings together 40 teams, each rowing 25,000 meters to reach 1,000,000 meters for the day on Concept2 stationary rowing machines.

The Million Meter Row began in 2016 to bring the functional fitness community in Michigan together to raise money and awareness for veterans struggling with the challenges of transitioning from military to civilian life. This event supports the nonprofit, GallantFew, whose mission is to support the military community in finding hope and purpose as they enter civilian life. 

By giving men and women the tools to succeed before they separate from their military service, we can significantly impact the fight to end veteran suicide. Million Meter Row helps GallantFew provide the tools and life-changing assistance to our military community.

On this historic day of remembrance, we honor those who responded and dropped everything 20 years ago to protect their country. Our mission is to give back to the men and women that served the United States military.

Lex Artis, a functional fitness event management company founded by Pat Esper and Nick Ostrowski (USAF Vet), is the host of Million Meter Row.
