A challenge for BBDRC Members only
Ladies versus Gentlemen
Ultrarunner Dan Lawson holds the record for running from Lands End to John O’Groats.
It took him 9 days, 21 hours, 14 minutes and 2 seconds.
Can we beat him? Can the ladies beat the gentlemen?
Every time you go for a run, no matter how far or how fast,
let us know using the form on this page.
We will keep a tally.
Check the website and newsletter to see what landmarks and famous places the two teams have run past. Look for the weekly report in the BBDRC Newsletter.
- Your run must be predominantly a RUN. Walking the dog/gerbil/budgie does not count. If you are a newbie runner (Welcome guys!) your walk-runs DO count, as do interval training and the like. Likewise, if you are returning to running after illness or injury, you can walk a little. You can, of course, run with your dog/gerbil/budgie.
- You can run on roads, trails or on a treadmill. Please stay safe and follow the current infection control rules.
- Please keep a weekly total and submit it using the form on this page by MIDNIGHT on Friday of each week. Your total will be any runs completed from 17.01 on Friday until 16.59 of the following Friday. The deadline allows us to do the tedious maths and the team captains to compile their reports for the Sunday newsletter. Submit total distance plus total time taken. Be honest with yourself and don’t stop your watch if you pop in somewhere for a cuppa or any other reason for a brief pause.
- Please submit your distance in MILES. Note for all Home Schoolers. To convert kilometres to miles, multiply by 0.621. Round up/down to 2 decimal places. Move over Maths on the Farm; make way for Maths on the Run. Submit your total time in minutes and seconds. You can measure distances on Google Maps (right click, select measure distance and left click at intervals along your route) or with a piece of string if you don’t have a fancy watch gizmo.
- Please let your Team Captains know any interesting/funny/noteworthy aspects of your weekly run. For example, the furthest you’ve ever run in a week, the first time you’ve run every day for a week, you met The Gary Barlow on Beccles Marshes.
- This is something we can all contribute towards. If you only run one mile every day for a week (or less than 15 minutes running a day) then you’ve contributed 7 miles. Note for all Home Schoolers. What percent of the 874 mile total is 7 miles (rounded up/down to 2 decimal places)?
