So, we didn’t reach 100 miles – we DID have 27 measured, timed miles submitted to the challenge, which is almost a marathon plus one.

It took us 5 hours and 9 minutes to run our Marathon Plus One relay. The average mile took 11:44, and the median mile wasn’t far off at 11:47.

The judges have conferred and here are the prizes we’ll be awarding:
Adeel in Toronto – Fastest
Sarah in Anchorage – Mountain Goat
Nancy in Arlington – First Triathlon Mile submitted
and also most average – not bad for having swum and biked first)
Anne in California – Pinkest
Marsha in Florida – Personal Record
Ron in Charlotte, N.C. – Better-Late-Than-Never, Ultimate Penguin Award
(he submitted his mile the latest)

Honourable mentions for close-but-no-cigar:
Jack in Germany submitted any one of his 31 miles run one after the other in
an ultra. Heather near Wardlow, Alberta submitted a belly dancing mile. While both of the above were pretty neat entries, a timed, measured mile was
required to be part of the relay.

For those of you who missed this challenge and are disappointed you didn’t get to participate, don’t fret, I’ll be issuing it again later on in the year.


  1. Mine may not have been a conventional mile, but I’m ‘tickled pink’ to be one of the honorees. Thanks!

  2. Be thankful I didn’t send in my mile. By the way, I do walk in Superstore at least once a week. Does that count? I usually tour the whole store on purpose, pushing a cart of course. And I do park a fair way away from the door too. Sometimes I even do the same in Walmart, on the same day even! And of course, now that summer is here, I ride my bike to the mailbox and back, sometimes….
    so glad that my daughter didn’t learn all my bad habits!!! Go, girl, Go! Love, Mom
