Dan Y Target for this is a marathon PB at Manchester in April. Currently stands at 3:12:05 from the same race last year.
The idea of this challenge is to improve your racing pace. Every runner already has their PB but don't just click on COMPLETE. Set your mind to get a brand new personal best and go for it. Prepare your training plan, pick an event, train and then come back and share your achievement. The challenge starts now!

Amélie M 4 laps in 6 minutes, even though there was too much walking. It's still the best I've got so far, I definitely plan on getting better and setting a new pb but for now, I'm happy with this one.
Candida B My new PB was You Yangs mountain trail Ultra. New distance - 80km - some very technical trails. 12.41 02 hours. ... and stoked lol.
Lara V did one of my usual rounds of running, but felt so good today that I did it faster than usual and were even able to include some sprints. felt great!
Denise S Wanted to complete a 5k in under 44 minutes and did it today in 42 minutes and 24 seconds during a virtual 5k race.
Éamonn M encouraged this.
Tina A 20km lake cycle - my local triathlon route. Dashed around it today in 44 mins. Previous time = 46 mins.New PB and something to beat. Would like to get this down to 40-42 mins. It is a hilly route.
Vincent R Unexpected PB while running a Half Marathon today on a warm & sunny day. Ran a 10K time of 41:28, an improvement of 32 seconds! In fairness, I probably shouldn't have set off that quickly though - HM time was 5 minutes off my best...
Rush F I haven't run a 5k since high school (2005). I am trying to set a personal best, and I am about 4:30 away as of now. I've got my work cut out for me. 23:30 in my last timed training run, and shooting for 19:00.
