Early in only the second week of an eight-week challenge to run 100km, Connor became the first elite athlete to reach the mileage target. He did it on day nine. On day 12, three other players, Ian, Greg and Reion, smashed the 100km target too. (Read Week One’s report)

Even a vice-president, Chris (Whealie), normally the VP lunch organiser, managed to run the 100km before the second week was out.
