Both runners and walkers took part in the test, where they had to cover a certain number of miles or kilometres depending on how many letters are in their first name. For example, ‘Sarah’ has five letters, meaning that person could run or walk five miles or kilometres.

Members could then decide if they wanted to continue and complete their surname, with some managing to run or walk the length of their middle names and nicknames.
