Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

  • Baigrie says: I will do this in 2010, missed it this year due to CBA following Edinburgh Marathon!!!!
  • Trix-df says: First full year running, but we have to aim high!! Good luck everyone

  • matthewpont says: I'm blogging about my attempt to do this, www.the1000milechallenge.com, gonna kick start it tomorrow with a 10 mile race. Good luck everybody.
  • Maisy says: Managed 800 miles in 2008, so it will be a challenge. I'm up for giving it a go though!
  • Aviemore says: Did 1007 in 2009, but not got all my runs logged on Fetch. Set out this morning thinking would set myself a target of 1200, but realised at three miles a day I would be off course very quickly. Realistically would like to do 1100, but 1000 again (and verified!) would be good. I have run every day since 30 August 2008 and seriously considered whether I should take the opportunity of the New Year to break the habit, but NO CHANCE!

  • Chich says: just failed in 2009 to do 1000 miles so hope for better luck in 2010
  • JimM says: I joined Fetch mid 2009 and managed just under 500 miles so hopefully you lot will make sure I'm motivated to reach 1000 in 2010.
  • run2thehills says: I'm in too. Stay injury free and should be ok.
  • Nicky Boy says: fell 60 miles short last year due to ankle injury, so have set target of 1060!! lets hope between us we hit the 136000 mile combined. good luck to all.
  • Tumble says: try again
  • Caterpillar says: OK - I am more upbeat now. Ahead of a special phased target and the clocks have gone forward. July update - I am not going to make this target, but I'll keep tracking it. The special phased target is giving me hell now. I have to do 4 miles a day to stay on track, but I'm behind so it's worse than that, he's dead, Jim, dead Jim, dead Jim, it's worse than that he's dead Jim, dead Jim dead.
  • timda says: injuries permitting, i should get there this year.
  • DuaneDibbley says: wasn't far off last year - which was my first year running really - probably over ambitous last year and ended up with all sorts of wee problems which niggled right up to the VLM. Hopefully manage 1k this year without the injuries slowing me down.
