Hi a friend suggested I look at this as a target to actually reach the 5k.

I was just wondering if anyone has done it. Essentially its a free 5k timed run every Saturday morning. I was wondering is it all serious runners or are their folk like us who can just about manage week 3, week 4 still seems a lifetime away and I would need to walk a very large proportion of the course.

Saturday's are difficult for me but with the summer coming up I could do one and I'd quite like to have a go see how ridiculously pathetic my time is so I can go again at Christmas when hopefully the app will have worked its magic, would I look completely out of place?
