Introducing the New Graduate10 Badge

I know we all like our badges on here because they are special to us and we work hard to achieve them.  So with that in mind we now have a Graduate10 badge that can go after your name.  If you have achieved a 10km please feel free to put your name down under this post and over the weekend I will work to catch up with all the names and apply the badge.

If your not there yet don't worry you have all the time you need and when you are ready your badge will be waiting for you.  Shining and ready to go after your name.

Hi Realfoodieclub. I hope you are well. I have just the one 10k under my belt, but would love a badge to show for it. Aiming for a second one some point soon hopefully :)

Me please... :-) what about a HM and FM badges as well ???

I know that distance is of no importance to some folk, but being able to fire a questions at someone who has achieved a certain distance may be useful..

Mmmmm that's something to think about.  You can only have one badge up at a time, hence the fact I can't have a badge as I have the adminstrator badge.  I wouldn't do FM badges as that would be stepping on Juicyju toes with her forum.  Let me have word with Healthunlocked and see what they think as well.  

Reply

Well I presume that the badge would show the longest race distance that someone has achieved...Graduate10K -> GraduateHM -> etc

Regularly running 10km, and in races too. I posted on C25K forum about my 'Downton Abbey' Highclere 10km race last September. Next race is the Chieveley Chase in 3 weeks.

Ooh ooh ooh me please!  I've done a few unofficially (well, Garmin said so :) ) but with a bit of luck I still just might get my first official one next weekend, fingers, toes and eyes crossed!

Thanks, Rfc - great idea :)

Reply

Do you want to wait?  Garmin is not always 100%.  Up to you.   

Reply

No, I'll go for it now, please, Rfc, because all my phone apps clock longer distances.  I go for the Garmin distances as being more accurate because I think they are, but Strava, Asics any my iPhone health thingy all come in a good .5km over Garmin.

So new badge, please :)

But it only measured 9.98 on my Garmin 😉 Hope we can all meet again next year. 

Reply

I started mine just before the start.  I've started doing that because you start running as soon as you can and it helps with the little quirks if it's slightly measured wrong.  So it was definitely 10km as you were penned in for around 0.3km at the start.  I will be there next year if not running just visiting with cake.

Hi all. I did C25K back in 2014 and then added a km per week to get to 10k.  I then stopped running pretty much but have recently decided to take it up again with a view to doing the St Albans half marathon in June.  So last week I did 6k to check I could still run at all and then did a 10k at the weekend as my 1st 'long slow run' of the campaign.  So do qualify for a badge?

Reply

I did it! I did it! My first 10(.51)k! 😄

Just seen this. Can you add me please. I've done a few 10K races. The most recent was the Saltwell 10K just before Christmas (but I've been on the injury couch since January...)

Hi I completed C25k in 2014 and completed 10k a few times later that same year, finishing the Wirral 10km in 1:21:48. Then I seemed to stop run and the most I have done without a walk break since is 4km. 

Does this mean I still get my shiny new badge please? Or do I have to wait until I am back up to 10km? 

Happy running 👟

The 10km is badge is for anyone who has done it.  So your more than welcome to it.  Some people have asked me to hold off as incentive to get back up to the distance but it is yours if you want it,
