Combined age of 304 but still running :)

Hi all

gazettelive.co.uk/news/tees...

These guys run at my local Park Run and have been dubbed the 'Antiques Roadshow' and have a combined age of 304 years! They've just been on the local news/TV and they are looking for challengers to take them on in a running relay ;)

I was thinking we could make up a group from c25k but, I for one, probably couldn't keep up with them ;)

Great example to us all and I'm looking forward to running alongside them at my first Park Run :)

A great advert for looking after yourself if ever there was one.

I think it must be good for mind and body if they are anything to go by! Enjoy your Parkrun when you go :-)

It certainly is and thank you, I'm certainly looking forward to it. I may just tag onto the back of these guys ;)

You could take a skateboard and let one of them pull you along by grabbing a shirt if you need a rest. D'you think they'd notice?

Haha. They probably wouldn't notice ;) Good idea actually ;)

Wow impressive stuff. Still plenty of years to get as good! :) Happy next park run.

Thanks. Exactly, I've got another 20-30 years (god willing) to get as good as them :)

very very nice and inspirational! And I´m still laughing with the idea of using calendars instead of watches :) :)

I know, I think it was Fred who only starting running in his 70's! There's hope for me yet ;o)
