Hi everyone, we're looking for some feedback for a feature, please see below from Adrian and get in touch:

Have you got an impressive race running streak?

Ok, let’s get the sniggers out of the way- this is about a running streak nothing involving nudity!

For RW, we are putting together a helpful article on running streaks and I would like to chat to a few runners who have done one or maybe are still doing one now.

It might be you have entered the same race, be it a 10k, half, or full marathon every year (maybe you have done the GNR, VLM or a local race every single year or the last 10-15 or more ?) I would love to hear from you too.

Or even if you do a parkrun and have done over 100 or more without ever missing a week, it would great to speak to you.

Please get in touch if you think you can help.

Male or female, any age and anywhere in the UK.

Please email me at adrian@montimedia.co.uk and I can explain it a bit more.

I look forward to hearing from you

Adrian

Are some chaps who have massive long streaks at our local half.

 

They're easy to spot by their ultra miserable face, wishing they'd never started it.

Where's hippo?

ye, I've cobbled together a few days

I think Adrian should reach out to Ploddinghippo who has been streaking for a fair few years.

I've started a streak with the dog as he needs a daily run but my 4 weeks is nothing in comparison to Hipps!

That there The Other Man is a real Parkrun tart - he's done zillions of them all over the globe!

Just my opinion, but surely a long term running streak is completely pointless?

How much a day counts? 100yards? 4miles?

At some stage you'll be foolishly running when ill or injured, and never letting your body recover.

SG -- Annie is asking about a "race running streak" as opposed to a "running streak"...  But agree that running streaks are pointless.

well spotted TD.

in fairness though, these threads never seem to amount to anything as they ask anyone with anything to add to email some guy....so I doubt they ever read back here...

Swittle is your man on this one....as anyone who frequents the "My Last Run" forum will know...

I've done the naked 5k for 9 years running - so meets both definitions of a running streak!

The GNR was this guy's 100th half marathon in 200 days.

I think he rattled off HMs 92-100 in less than a fortnight.

I've been following his progress on Facebook. He's been running on a broken toe for a long spell, but his 99th was still a PB - 1hr 31.

I see this point of view but then much of life itself is totally pointless.  A geek I work with was showing me things that people had spent untold numbers of hours creating on Minecraft last week.  Heseemed impressed, I was mystified.  If they'd made them out of matchsticks i'd have still been a little bemused but at least they'd have something solid out of their efforts.  All they had here were some pixels that a game had allowed them to form.  Now that's pointless.

I guess streaking is about application, dedication to their sport in an abnormal way.  I dunno.  Either way, I do admire that focus.  I enjoy my rest days too much.

Do what works for you.

 

I do.

You cannot begin to understand my disappointment after reading the headline of the post to then go on and read the content

makesa makes a change from republishing articles from the American Runners World. 

Do you also just re publish the letters too? if so the letter responses to the Smoking is new Sitting article are already done last month for the US
