Last year a group of us from the BI group I go to did a 5k Santa dash near where I live. It could be ran or walked so suited most people. I did part run part walk as I was just getting used to running. The last km was tough I had ran and fast walked all way and the man who runs group had completed it and came back to encourage me and was videoing me so I had to try to run tho I would have gladly walked.
Since then because I’m on benefits that could be effected if I ran he man has stopped all running with me understandably but disappointing. This year he has mentioned doing another Santa dash with the group he’s decided the Humber bridge only it doesn’t look like there is the usual 5k one there this year. Instead I have found a different one which is 6 hours long can still be walked or ran and idea is see how many circuits you can do in that time. You can wear Santa outfit so basically it would give me chance to do bit of running and see how far I could get. Perfect thing for me and others to test themselves.
So I’m hoping to persuade the man to sign us up to do that this year. Going to go in and ask how many would be interested and mention doing it to raise money for the charity get the man keen then tell him it’s 6 hours long as that is the part that will likely put him off. He’d be fine managing it he is used to running marathons but he’s normally struggling to have time for things also he will probably be unsure about certain people managing that amount of time tho there is quite a few I think he knows would be ok me included. Could also do the normal 5k ones at different place if he’d prefer
