Just had a follow up from John - he hadn't run over a half marathon since 1994 - but since completing all 6 distances in Race The Machine he is now confident to take on a new challenge. He has entered a marathon for his 71st birthday! All of John's times can be viewed here: racethemachine.co.uk

I am struggling to get form back after getting covid at Easter. I am now running without the need for walk break and my breathing isn't laboured. But getting in good enough shape for to the 1500 metres as my next race is proving to be tough.

Been stalked by an advert here on Fetch tonight.
I haven't actually done a proper race for a good 5 years.

So a couple of questions:

1) Did anyone do this challenge last year?
2) If so, how were the times you received from the machine? Easy, reasonable, challe...
