Better contact the Guiness book of records.
The current one hour record is 13.23 miles set by Haile Gebreselasie in 2007!

Looking at the spreadsheet it appears some are already ignoring the 'in an hour' rule. Not sure any LDWA member is capable of 14 miles, even running!

We need to remember that the 4 Countries making up the UK may have different 'rules' about exercise. In addition there may be overseas Members doing this challenge.

Considering that the 'Covid' exercise allowance has changed since Wednesday 13th May - what distances do we add into the May spreadsheet. Stick with what was achieved in one hour, or move to record total daily mileage. Thank you.

In the absence of any challenge events able to be run by local groups at the moment the NEC have organised a 100 mile challenge which everyone can participate in from their own front door. Essentially all you need to do is log the distance you cover during an hour of your regular daily exercise and enter it into the spreadsheet at
There is also an associated Facebook page at for anyone who uses social media to post photos of their walk, see what others have been doing and where they have been walking to bring the social element to the event .

You can also find these links in an easier way under Events from the LDWA home page.
