    I was thinking of starting some MacRumors running challenges such as fastest times over a certain distance or most miles covered.

    If anyone wants to take part, what do you think the best challenges would be? and then maybe PM me with your e-mail address so I can send you the challenge. I was thinking most miles covered over two weeks and also who can get the fastest 5K time.

    Thanks delhux, that site is just what I was looking for. :)

    I think for now I'll sign up for their challenges, but in the future I think it would be cool if we had some forum challenges. Maybe when a few more people get all the kit together!!

    You could start a MacRumors group on the NIKE+ website, but there is a 50 member limit. :(

    "You can invite up to 50 people to compete against each other or complete a goal as a team."

    Located under "my runs" > "challenges"​

    Yeah, thats what I was thinking of doing however you have to send the challenge to each individual person, you can't make a MacRumors running group. :(

    It would be good though if you could create a group and have people join it.

    I'm out of shape, but I would like to join or start a nike+ running group. My average mile is around 13 min now. I hope to get to 8 min for a casual pace. I just set up these two challenges:

    Going the distance - 100 miles starting 8/1/2006
    Going for speed - fastest 3 mile run -- ends 9/1/2006

    If you are interested, have the nike+ stuff, and not a seasoned 6 Mile pace runner -- PM me your email address and I will invite you.

    I can't run anymore because of my legs, but you guys need to do 5K (3.1 miles) and 10K (6.2 miles). And then a half marathon for the big guns. Those are pretty standard distances.
