    Darebee 5k

    Once the snow melts around here, I was thinking of starting to run again as a form of cardio. My wife is also interested, and as she has never really been a runner, I thought that she might try to aim to complete 5k as a goal.

    There has been some talk about organizing a 5k for the Hive dwellers in the past, so I was wondering if there is actually any interest in setting up a 5k run among us.

    Looking at the calendar, the weekend of April 17-19 would make sense. That way the people in the Northern Hemisphere have a chance to let the snow melt and it wouldn't have gotten too cold yet in the Southern Hemisphere. It would also hopefully line up with us starting to run in early March, which should be enough time to train for a 5k.

    It would basically work on the honor system, to track out your own 5k route, run the 5k anytime on that weekend, and to send in the times for compiling the distance (or not to share times, but just to say that you completed it.)

    Very interesting idea!

    Here is my running schedule for this week.

    Monday: Easy run 3.22km
    Tuesday: Easy run 1.6km
    Thursday: Easy run 3.22km
    Saturday: Easy run 3.22km / harder run 1.6km / even harder 0.4km 🤦‍♂️

    May the force be with me

      I'd be interested, I'm running a half-marathon with my sister (itsi her first one and I've not done one in a while) at the start of May but a 5k run would fit in well with that.

      And good luck with your running this week Musical gym

          I'll jump in with yall. Just post the final date you would like to aim for and I'll make sure to run a 5k on that one. Should be pretty easy weather wise as we are already starting to see spring temps.

              Azercord Cool, let's just aim for this weekend in April (17-19). Seeing as we are all on different schedules we can complete whenever.

              Musical gym Hinris Lor Ok great! I will send a reminder to anyone interested in about a month and then again in early April.

                I love the idea CaptainCanuck We could organize an official DAREBEE run and feature it on the homepage. Several of us (team members) go running every Sunday morning so we are obviously in.

                I'll keep an eye on this thread to fine-tune the details.

                      CaptainCanuck since I can never seem to plan more than a week in advance that weekend works perfect (even if it doesn't) The reminders will be fantastic.

                      neilarey having this as a CaptainCanuck 5k Flight of the Darebees event would be awesome.

                          Perfect! My hubby is running a quarter marathon (~10k) in April and has to start in March with his training.
                          I'm planning on a 5k event in late summer / early autumn, so March is definitely soon enough to start - plus, a Darebee 5k-run on the weekend of the 17th, April, sounds fun! Or any other weekend then, really.

                              That weekend already seems packed for me, but I'll have to cancel some of my coinciding plans anyway, so depending on which ones I choose, I might have time for a run. It'd be awesome.
