Default Hogwarts Running Club

How many of you have joined the Hogwarts Running Club? How long have you been running? Which medals do you have? Do you have a different virtual running club you joined? Maybe you do multiple ones! Let's talk about running and the fun involved!

I personally am unable to run very far, due to have broken my ankle last year but it hasn't stopped me from going out and doing the goals! I have made it to 1.5 miles at a time, at 2.4mph walking. Usually I walk on the treadmill but I also walk on my driveway and dirt road. Solid surfaces bother it more than softer surfaces.

I have the following medals from the HRC!
  • Patronus 5K
  • Molly Weasley Jumper 5K
  • Umbridge Run 13K - working on finishing
  • Half-Blood Prince Half Marathon - Just signed up!

Has anyone signed up for the house marathon? I want to but...I haven't finished the last 2 yet, so I'm not sure if I want to do the time turner instead to get it back at the end of the year or not...

I want to but trying to save up the money for it or hope for sponsorship. If not time turner will be what I do.

I never saw this thread before. You know I'm a member Liz. Love it.

I have not signed up for it. I love to do the 5K races they have and I know I can break down the marathon over time, but I like doing them like it RL ones so I'd feel I had to do a marathon and I am no where near ready for that.

Hi!!

Kat that might be how I need to do it this time with the cost...with a sponsorship

Ali the marathon sort of is broken up by house if you wanted to look at it that way lol it's how I'm looking at it. But I totally get that! I wish I could do more than 2 miles at once at the moment and that's on a good day

I fell off the running train for a few months and now can't even jog a mile so I'm just walking at the moment. I've been doing three miles a day for now. I'm hoping to start getting jogging in soon again.

Can you walk these too? I don't run, but I need to start walking again and this might be good motivation. Maybe.

Yep, you can walk or run them. You can break them up. Some, like Matt, do them fully like a RL race, but others will break them up to a mile, two miles, three miles a day type of thing. It's a fantastic way to just get out and get active, plus have a huge group of people supporting you.

I finally signed up for the house run. I like how they laid it out, each medal is one on its own and can be connected with the magnet. The center is a keychain. So if you only run/walk one of them you can accept that and work towards the others!

I have now...6 to finish xD but I'm determined to do it by the end of summer I'm 2 miles down and have 54 miles to go before I'm done!

I'm with MJ I can't run, my ankle just won't let me, but at least it's nice again and hopefully I'll get some time outside walking. I found my fitbit finally so YAY!

Walk...run...bike. I remember someone was swimming for the Umbridge after working out the distance a lap covered.

I walk mostly, especially when I'm outside. Though when I use the treadmill, I will mix some jogging into it.

WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I didn't know the Hogwarst RUnning CLub had a thread here!!!! It's my thiiinggggg <3 <3 <3

Thanks to Ali, actually xD she posted about the Patronuks 5k last year and I went lurking around the interwebz and found it... never left it after that <3

My medals:

Patronus 5k
Umbridge 13k
Half-blood Prince Half Marathon!

I wanted to get the full house marathon, but it's too expensive for me atm. I'm probably going to get it during the Time-turner period or maybe next year.


The people over at the Facebook groups are awesome (you can find me both in the Great Hall and Gryffindor Common Room, teehee!) and so supportive! It's amaziiinnngggg!!!

I mean, running combined with Harry Potter! You can't get much cooler than that :3

HAI! So excited about all the awesome people who have found the thread and that are with the HRC!

I wish I could swim more because I love to do it but I don't have anywhere I can really do laps... I thought, reading over the schedule though for the races this year there might be an ironman challenge for the 2016 challenge? I'm not sure though because only the first 2 were accurate with the jumper run and umbridge run. But the next was supposed to be Peter Pettigrew and Charity Burbage....so I'm totally unsure now

The headmaster/headmistress warned that the schedule was phony. Just the dates are 100% accurate. It was a way to tease those always itching for information on the races. Much like the clues before each are.

And me! I need to look at my month's budget first, though =P but I really want toooo! As my first running anniversary was last week, I made a list of new goals for this up coming running year! Teehee!

That includes double the amount of races I did this past year. Soooo... until July 2017 I must have run six 5Ks plus a few other distances :3 this should be a fun place to start, methinks!

WOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Money wise I might not get them all, but I am so going to try to do most. I'm excited about it this year. I hated taking the year off last year, but I just wasn't in the right place. I've been in goal setting mode lately and I want to keep it that way.

And me! Last year I only did two of the runs and I had to get them sponsored because I couldn't afford any of it =S

But this year's already started off completely different (financially speaking as well, which is good) and I'll budget so I can do all of the races and be a prefect perfect finally, hooraaay =P
