Go for a run over sunrise and again over sunset of the same day. One of the best parts of running is the scenery, and what is better than getting out there when the sky is ablaze with beautiful colours. Run east in the morning and west in the evening to get the most of it.
Dawn and dusk Challenge rules
- Run at sunrise and at sunset on the same day
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“Really good challenge, loved running into the sunset :) Official distance for the sunset run 4.93k in 30:29. Just missed out on the 5k under 30 minutes, but i changed route for this run, added a big hill, which may have slowed me down a tad..... ”

Beth H Just completed the first have of this challenge I ran at Dawn & wow it was so peaceful & very, very beautiful.
Jamie C Really have every intention of getting to this one but need to wait until Autumn. Sun is rising now at 4:30 AM and setting at 10 PM.... My 70 hour construction weeks just wont let me stay up that late!
Wayne S Should nail this one tonight, done the morning run at 5.30am and planning the dusk run at about 8pm
Michael M Didn't happen today due to parental taxi duties :-/ Birthday run tomorrow then will retry on the Bank Holiday Monday
Callie C can push complete but i did bike dawn and dusk in one day. loved the biking from dark into dawn with the sound of the birds waking up. had moon above and the sun coming up as well. Beautiful. have to do this running though to be honest to push complete :)
Lorain R I'm usually getting into my pajamas this time of night, but instead if being in bed at 7:30 p.m. tonight, I'll be on a run to complete this challenge. I don't usually run in the evening, either, because I don't sleep well after strenuous exercise. This challenge will definitely be a stretch for me but I'm grateful to be able to do it!
Bruce B Just a note: I did this in Yukon Canada when the sun set and rose within 40 minutes. Does that count... not.
Graeme L Sunrise in London. 350 mile journey. Sunset near Linlithgow.
As the sunset wasn't anything special I've added a bonus pic of a swan in the dark :o)
Shantanoo B Finally managed to tick this off.. both the runs were on road. No treadmill-ing there. :D
Jessy M Alarms Set! gonna do this tomorrow! two birds with one stone... early run challenge AND the Dawn and Dusk challenge :)
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
