John O’Groats to Land’s End Virtual Challenge – Update

We’ve made it to Exeter so not much further to go now!  We have clocked up an amazing 810 miles so far. 50 different runners logged some mileage.  There is still time to let me know any miles you have logged.  No miles are too few or times too slow. Put it on Facebook or email me at

The total time taken so far is 5 days 7 hours and 43 mins.

The question is what do we next?  We are unlikely to be back running as a club until after May 31st and it’s good to keep everyone talking and running.  We have had a few suggestions:

  1. Ledbury to Stromstad (our twin town in Sweden)
  2. From Land’s End, along the  South coast and then up the East Coast back to John O’Groats
  3. Route 66 – Chicago to Santa Monica California.

Only miles required this time. Walking, cycling, running, horse riding – any form of exercise will count. If you have any thoughts on which route you would prefer, please let me know.

Hope you are all keeping safe and well.
