Here are some stats from the nice people at parkrun.

It seems that half a million of you have completed 5K in less than 45 minutes and a surprisingly high number of people who have gone below 20 minutes – to do that sort of performance you HAVE to train to some degree. Looks like we are all getting fitter as a nation.

Other stats show that 6m runs were completed by males and 4 million by females. 1.5 million runs (including 2ks) were completed by the under 17 year olds.
