Concept2 has a number of challenges throughout the year. Many of these reward consistency and total meters instead of speed, giving an extra incentive to work out regularly. You can also feel good that you are part of the larger Concept2 community, even if you work out alone!

How to Participate

All of our online challenges are run through the Concept2 Online Logbook—a free web-based application that allows you to record your workouts, track your total meters and, if you choose, compare your times with other participants from around the world.

Once you achieve the challenge goal, you’ll be able to download a certificate of participation or purchase items such as T-shirts and mugs. If you like, you can also have your name included on the challenge honor board!

For more information about each challenge, visit the Challenge Information section of the Logbook, or click on the challenge name below. You can also download a Challenge Calendar.
