Chris D Completed after attempting to run a awkward trail run that I wasn't prepared for. Didn't make my 6 miles, but I ran for over an hour.

Musicool W I have been doing 3x 20 minute sessions of running with a water break, but this challenge helped me to make a breakthrough and this evening I completed an hour without stopping. I am so delighted. Then I got talking to this nice personal trainer who offered me a free session, so it has done its magic :) Thanks!

Extremely pleased with myself never thought I could run for that long without walking, I guess it just goes to prove you can do anything if you put your mind to it .. :) but again beat my record for 5k in under 30, broke the record again to 27 mins .1 very pleased and completed my run for an hour without walking
