THE EDGAR 6 CHALLENGE

GARMIN GALLOPS
Are you ready to take the challenge to the next level?
The E6C Garmin Gallops are monthly challenges which we organise via Garmin Connect. A different runner sets the challenge each time. Challenges can vary from a simple monthly distance target, to completing specific workouts or finding somewhere new to run. We also organise one off challenges such as Kev's Xmas Eve Bumper 5k where we all try to complete the same challenge on the same day. The charts show the completion rates for challenges each runner has participated in and progress is recorded monthly.
  • Ali 77% 77%
  • Gordon 33% 33%
  • Kenny 79% 79%
  • Kev 87% 87%
  • Martin 52% 52%
