I Challenge You ...

I want to challenge you to throw long distances, fancy running gear and fast paces out the window.

Perhaps you've already started None to Run or you are waiting for January?

Well I am here to provide you with some encouragement, social interaction with like-minded runners and the possibility of winning some cool prizes.

Let's kickoff 2018 the right way!

November 2016 and January 2017 Challenge Participant (and shirt winner!)


How do I participate?  

Successfully complete any four successive weeks of the None to Run plan from January 1st through January 31st.  

E.g. Complete weeks 1-4, weeks 5-8, weeks get the picture.

Each workout must be recorded or entered in our None to Run Club on Strava.



Each week I will pick one participant to win a None to Run t-shirt.



Two lucky participants will win a pair of running shoes from Running Warehouse.

  1. One pair will be Asics (max value $150 USD).
  2. One pair will be Adidas (max value $150 USD).


To be eligible to win a prize, you must complete each of the three runs during each week of the plan and record them into Strava.

Click here if you don't have the None to Run plan/schedule.

I will pick two winners at random sometime during the first week of February 2018.

No runs, no prizes!

What Do Past Participants Have to Say?

Loved this challenge. Enjoyed seeing all the other athletes achieve their goals as well as where they are from. It was like our own little support group. Thank you Mark for putting this together and I cant wait for the next one to start!

I wanted to say, thanks so much for running the challenge! I’ve been struggling with motivation the past few months, and this has been fun, and helped a lot. I really appreciate it!

I really appreciate this None to Run Challenge. I’ve been getting back into running and looking for something to help. I found this online and signed up. Just a little motivation goes a long way. For example, there are days when I think, “I really don’t want to get off the couch and go for a run. But if I do and log my miles, I might have a chance at winning something!” And it works! I’ve ran or walked nearly every day for a month, and it’s made a difference in my health. And the people who send you encouragement really helps too. Thanks Mark for hosting this! I’m going to sign my wife and some friends up for the next one! Keep up the good work.
