Jan 2021 Run Challenge Summary - Van Run Club

Van Run Club does a month run challenge, where members pick a distance or time goal for themselves to run by the end of the month. Speed only matter that you may get to your distance faster, but the main intention is to get people in our community active. Especially in social distancing times.


Here are some of the stats from the first month:

  • 6 people (including myself)

  • 5 Local Runners, 1 Non-Local Runner

  • Goals set - 485K | Kilometers Run - 579K

  • Individual goals ranged from 30K-200K for January

  • Everyone hit or exceeded their goal


In a post challenge survey everyone said they:

  • Were happy they participated

  • Would consider doing it again

  • Would recommend the challenge to others



We're doing another challenge in March. The intention is to get you out and be active. It doesn't need to be a huge goal, just something more than you'd do normally.

  • Motivating

  • Supportive

  • A fun way to stay active

  • Great group energy

  • Increased accountability

They all said they would recommend the challenge and would tell others that:

  • It's a great way to start a good habit

  • All the goals are personally set, there is not pressure to exceed your limits unless you want to
