Samantha L

Having completed a couch to 5k programme in February, I was hooked to keeping fit and running and wanted to set myself a challenge to keep going and improving. I signed up for 25 miles in March with 2 days remaining I have reached 48 miles – hoping to smash the 50 miles by the end of the month. My family have also been supporting me clocking up the miles and my son (aged 12) has reached 25 miles in March.

I have completed three months of 25 miles and am now moving up to 50 miles in April. I find this a real motivator and since signing up have shed half a stone. I have also introduced it to some friends too and they love it! It’s a really good idea and I have pushed myself on days I may have given up just in order to get the medal! Great site and great idea. Onwards and upwards!

LINDA P

I’ve just completed the February 25 mile challenge I walked as a warm up and quite easily did the challenge. I am looking forward to signing up for the 50 mile challenge in April. This is a great motivator for getting fit and healthy.

Steve K

A simple idea, a brilliant concept! I have just completed my first month – 50 miles of running in February. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I have already signed up and started my March 75 mile run! Day one was today in the snow and cold! Thanks so much, a great way to motivate the likes of me to get fitter and healthier.

Fiona M

Signed up for 25 miles in January and loved it, was just what I needed to get me back out their. I became very addicted to the numbers and having to beat my time every day. Doing 50miles in February. And can happily say it’s the 17th of Feb and I am at 51 miles. So bring on March will be doing 75miles. 🙂

Margaret M

Just completed the January 2018 150 miles challenge. It’s just what I needed to get me back out and motivated after a 5 month hip injury rehabilitation but this has been brilliant and a good way to share it with other people as they were all willing me to finish it – even though some of them weren’t runners themselves. Loved it 🙂

Sharon Roberts

This is our first sign up, I’ve signed myself and my 2 little girls aged 3 and 4 up for 50 miles and 10 miles.
Hoping to crack on straight away and smash it. Great fun for the kids as they cant wait to get their medals, and great kick up the bum for me to get off my backside and actually do it. I have Fibromyalgia so some days are a real challenge to even get up.

Srimathi Aiyer

I signed up for 25 miles in January 2018 and managed to achieve it by steadily doing 1 mile a day. Towards the end I pushed myself to aim for 1.5 miles daily and I’m now even more determined to do it again in February and possibly every month for the rest of the year! Definitely motivating and the medals look stunning. Thank you RAYP team!

Rhys Evans

I thought I could give the 200 mile challenge a go. Helped by a charity 22 mile walk around the Gower, I finished the month with 243 miles. Keen to beat that record I signed up for October and the 200 mile race again. Just about to submit the evidence, breaking the 250 mile barrier with ease. I’m enjoying going out and running to escape the stresses of life so much, that I’ve signed up for November!!

Margaret B

I sign up for 50 miles enjoyed it so much I went on and did the 200 miles. Great way to do more exercise and keep fit.

Flora Pape

Absolutely loved this challenge, really encouraged me to get out extra and the medal makes you proud of what you have achieved! Love it, my first running challenge of many hopefully! Thank you

Debbie T

Thanks to Race at Your Pace I’ve found a passion for running that I never thought I would have! Having now received my first medal in the post I can’t wait to enter more challenges!

Ben O

I took part in the July race at your pace. I ran 25 miles in the month. It was a great inspiration for me to start my training for a half marathon. I haven’t run 25 miles in a year let alone a month. I can’t wait to do it again and get the 50 mile medal.

Dhanraj V

I am here in UK for year on work visa, Just started running a month ago (yah, I am a beginner). I came across Race at your pace on FB and I got a reason to run, I did 50 miles for June. I will go back to India in couple of months, but I will enroll for more miles. Thanks for inspiring 🙂

Samantha T

Fab love my medal and t shirt(50 miles ran in May) this is just the motivation I need to get me out and running think I will challenge myself to 100 miles next!! Oh and the medal goes with everything from formal dresses to PJs and slippers(yes I have it on constantly it’s the first medal I have ever received!!)

Ian Cox

Well raceatyorpace came along at the right time for me, I got injured on June 10th, 2016, breaking my shoulder, 12 ribs and 2 back bones so I was very out of shape. I’m glad It made me disciplined to do my best. I ran 178 miles in March because I desperately wanted to regain my strength after my injury. After a summer without activity, I was a very frail old man, now thankfully a fit old man, and believe me there is a big difference.

Nige T

I have myeloma cancer and am now unable to train in the way that I used to. I can no longer run at a competitive level. I have found the Race At Your Pace monthly challenge such an excellent motivator, it has been a life saver for me. Thank you Race At Your Pace.

Rebecca V

When I came across Race At Your Pace it immediately appealed to me as I knew that having to go out to reach a mile target would do the trick. I went for the 25 miles to start with this month and am pleased to report that I have just a couple more to go, with a few days left too. I’ve already signed up for next month. I like the concept and it has got me back wearing my trainers consistently – its a good motivator for me. Thanks very much, I would, and have, recommended it.

Ciaran A

Race at your pace has been a refreshing challenge alongside my other races and goals. It inspired and motivated me to train during the early part of the season and my running times and fitness are reflecting that now! To top it all off the medals are always fantastic and the extra gifts are always good quality and well needed items. Thanks race at your pace!

Darren Mealin

Thank you I would just like to say how taking part in this challenge has given me the motivation I needed I take part in a 85 mile race here on the Isle of Man every year called the parish walk and don’t normally train so this year I can give it my best as race at my pace has given me a lust for getting out to train and to do the best I can once again thank you

Denise H

I entered the race at your pace March 50 mile challenge, it really gave me the motivation I needed to get out training and clocking up the miles. Thanks very much.
