I’m asked this question quite often and was asked again yesterday. It usually goes hand in hand with how far do you run every day?
Well, let me answer these questions for you.
How far do I run every day?
During the week I run between 4AM and 6AM in the morning and this is anything from 8km to 17km. I do all my runs during the week on the road.
On weekends I run basically any distance depending if it’s in a race or training. My longest training run on my own was 51km and I’ve done 50km twice in training.
Races can be any distance and goes into answering the other question.
What is the longest run I’ve ever done?
If we are talking non-stop without sleeping the answer is 173km (107.5miles) in a 24hour race. If it includes sleep breaks it is 689km (428miles) in a 6 day race.
So there you have it...how far have you run?
