RSE Race Report – 29/11/2020 – A Virtual Centurion and Lockdown Escapee!

Races may not be taking part in their usual format, but that hasn’t stopped Running Somewhere Else club members from taking on some great challenges across Lockdown – virtually, of course!

DB Max Escape Lockdown Virtual Mileage Challenge

Encouraging runners to set their own mileage targets, DB Max challenged participants to run as far as they could across the 4-week lockdown period. RSE’s Elliot Gardiner took on the task, aiming for over 50 miles to achieve the Escape Lockdown medal.

I found it a good motivational tool to get me out running at least 3 times a week. Without the promise of a medal, I wouldn’t have gone out in the rain and cold as much!

Elliot completed a total of 54.18 miles, despite the cold weather and losing a shoe on the ‘muddiest route possible’! Fantastic running, Elliot!

The missing shoe…

Centurion Running One Community Run

Running in every weather!

The Centurion Running One Community hosted a 7 day virtual event where runners chose targets from 5k – 100m. Never one to shy away from the longer distances, RSE’s Sarah Reynolds selected the 100 mile option!

Sarah completed 9 runs over 7 days to reach the target, ending on a total of 101 miles for the week. Her shortest run was 6 miles, while the longest was 17.4 miles – that’s an average of 15 miles a day!

I loved it to be honest. 6 of those runs were made a lot easier by being joined by RSE friends!
