National recruitment & talent consultancy Broster Buchanan and Harpenden-based training gym Marchon Athletic are pulling together to raise money for registered charity London Youth Rowing.   Through the sport of rowing, London Youth Rowing empowers young people’s lives through improving their physical, social and mental wellbeing whilst helping develop crucial life skills.



On Friday 28th February ‘The Broster Buchanan Unsinkables’ are signed up to take part in the ‘Race the Thames 2020’ challenge at Olympic Park, London and the skilled team at Marchon Athletic have taken up the mantle of training CEO, Andrew Broster at Broster Buchanan through their highly tailored regime. Starting with a full body composition analysis, Andrew will be taken through a number of training sessions comprised of both strength and conditioning protocols as well as receiving nutritional advice to ready him for the challenge ahead.


“LYR are passionate about making fitness and rowing accessible to young people from all walks of life; helping them get active, develop confidence and skills and have fun in the process!  They are currently working with over 70 schools and 20 clubs. Last year over 5,500 participants took part in their programmes or activities, including over 250 young people with disabilities.”


Broster Buchanan’s team of 8 will race the full length of the Thames (45 miles) on rowing machines overlooking the buzz of the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships, with guest appearances from Olympic Rowers to help coach and motivate the participants.   At this event Broster Buchanan will also host a stand to offer careers advisory skills to 11-18 year olds, in partnership with Weetabix.
