The spirit of Febtathlon*

* The following blog post contains shameless bragging.


Last February, I took part in Febtathlon as a way to avoid going cold turkey after Janathon.  I introduced it as follows:

In the absence of any rules, I’ve decided to don the mantle of my five year old niece and make some up. Following her example, I shall add ever more complicated rules over the course of the month, and at the end I shall have won!

It appears that the spirit of Febtathlon is alive and well.  For parkrun has revamped its most events table.  To be included, runners now need to have attended at least 20 different events or 5 inaugural events…

…and if you sort by inaugural events…

I shall have won!

Yay for Febtathlon!

    Well done. You best keep an eye on the next inaugural run though and get there before Mark or you will loose top spot.

    It’s not fair I tell you, I got to 8 different parkruns (in the freezing cold at Pymmes) before learning that they’d changed the rules. What’s worse is that I’ve done all my local ones so I’ll have to be out of bed earlier to score another 12. I bet they change the rules again.
    Well done though!
