We had a '2015 miles in 2015' thread two years ago but didn't do the equivalent in 2016. For those who want a more challenging target than '2017 km in 2017', how about going for the number in miles?

I ran 1920 miles last year, so have a reasonable chance of achieving this. If there are a few others I promise I will do a nice bar chart. Might even bring back the gold, silver and bronze stars for the first three to complete the challenge.

For the purposes of this challenge, the 'running week' runs from Monday to Sunday inclusive. The first week of the year will be an eight day week as it will include Sunday 1st January. So if people can report their mileage up to 8th Jan inclusive then weekly thereafter I will try to update the bar chart, if we have one, by the Wednesday following.

This challenge just gets harder every year. ;)

Now that my little one is nearing 2 years old, I'm getting in much more regular training so may as well have a shot at this.

Count me in and I'll post weekly mileage updates on a Monday.

Gosh, I think we already have the requisite minimum number for a bar chart!

I'm doing it in Km. I failed my own challenge when I set the 2015km two years ago so not expecting much better this time!

Someone may set up a km thread but there is really no point in me doing it as I have far exceeded that for the past two years. It wouldn't be a challenge any more.

I'll have a go, I've done that many miles in a year before but I've 'only' got to 1600ish for the last few

I've done 81 km so that's 50,3 miles. How many decimal places do we want anyway? Would have thought rounding to the nearest mile is sufficient. Thanks for setting this up, Claire.
