Group: Fetchathon - whether it be March, June, September or December

110 members [See all]

Join this if you're interested in doing a thon i.e. a month (March, June, September, December) where you run EVERY DAY for at least a mile at a speed of at least 15 minutes per mile.

I'm trying to have one overall group rather than lots of little groups.

  • StormProof says: Gulp!
  • Philippe Flop says: Using this as an incentive to get close to 1000 miles for the year!
  • spikeyboy says: Normally do more cross training (well, just other things really) than running. This seems daft enough to go for though .....

  • markuu says: Saw this and thought I'd have a go at Septemberthon
  • Southcoastpete says: Yep, I'll join in :)
  • PaulaMc says: September - let's give it a shot
  • jiminy cricket says: Can anyone play? Don't know if this is still an active thread but it seems a fun notion. Was attracted to the Decemberathon but am trying a Novemberathon as practice. So far, so good and it's already 4th (now 9th) November. I like the fast walk option (which I've already called into use twice (several times)) In maintaining the ethos of "...athon", is it permissable to cross train rather than run/walk?
  • katypie says: This was fun last year :)
  • Musical Journey says: I need something to motivate if I've over indulged on the Christmas cheer the night before ;)
  • Lills says: Will do this challenge next year, hopefully in June when I have had my baby!
  • the_dobster says: I've been doing this in December, without even knowing there was a group! Bring it on!
