If you're going to do away with the name "half marathon" then there's no point running 13.1 miles - might as well do 20km instead, would make a lot more sense.

What he said.

Only reason the marathon has a name is historical roots, no other standard distance from 100m to 100 miles has a name

If I told my family I was running a pikermi, they would probably think I'd lost it and would try to get me to seek help!! 



but don't you think you had just missed off the x at the end.......they would all want to come

Great idea.

Don't forget to rename the marathon to a "double pikermi" in order to avoid any confusion.

It's a 5k because that's how far it is.

What village are we going to name that one after?

It's a 10k because that's how far it is.

Is there a town in the right location for that?

It's a 1/2 marathon because...

Well, you know where I'm going.

I suppose someone thought this Pikermi thing was clever?

Sometimes better to think than try to be clever.

Just to put this to bed....


When some spectacular feat of human bravery/ endurance is performed in/ near to your town then you can name a race of that distance after yourself, otherwise shut the f*** up!
