Yo, the Moon-running Massive!!!
Thank you to everyone who joined in with the "August" distance challenge which ended up carrying on until the end of September 😁
AND AN EXTRA-BIG THANK YOU TO JU-JU- FOR CREATING THE CHALLENGE!!! 💥😊
We didn't quite make it all the way round the moon, but we managed 6004.14 miles (or 9662.73 km); 88.48% of the way round!*
To quote Lordi:
"Not too bad! We did run round Europa, Triton, Pluto, Eris, Haumea, Titania, Rhea, Oberon, Iapetus, Makemake, Charon, Umbriel, Ariel, Dione, Quaoar, Tethys, Sedna, Ceres, Orcus, Salacia out of the bigger solar bodies (mostly moons) with a radius above 400 km."
So there, so fabulous 😊
A few more statistics:
Here are our Top 10 Astronauts (to the end of September):
1. marco83, 322.54 miles
2. Ian Barton (Strava only**), 260.11 miles
3. roseabi, 239.23 miles
4. AnnieW55, 219.11 miles
5. ju-ju-, 205.92 miles
6. misswobble, 205.67 miles
7. DiveMonkey, 195.98 miles
8. Lucy Kirwan (Strava only**), 191.32 miles
9. Macmac, 186.41 miles
10. Lordi, 181.75 miles
Many others were not far behind!
On my list I have a total of 54 Adventurers, some of whom joined the Strava group perhaps by accident 😊
A total of 28 Moon Runners specified a distance goal for the initial four weeks, and 50% of them reached it - well done!
Probably this all just goes to show that people have very different ambitions and positions when it comes to running. I certainly know there were some long-distance race finishes achieved during the challenge!
Massive kudos to you all, and keep on getting out there, enjoying your runs!!!
* I've used 10921 km as the Moon's circumference, and quoted figures to 2 decimal places. Also, I think some people have joined and left during the challenge, so there are no doubt some errors! But it's all just a bit of fun really 😊
** As far as I know...?
