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
Elliot completed a total of 54.18 miles, despite the cold weather and losing a shoe on the ‘muddiest route possible’! Fantastic running, Elliot!
Centurion Running One Community Run
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!Sarah
Congratulations Sarah on achieving a tremendous amount of miles across the week!
