Calling all juvenile and senior members to try out this challenge…

The ‘Cheptegei Challenge’ is based on the world records set this year in both 5,000m and 10,000m by Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei.  In August, he ran 5k in 12 minutes 35 seconds. Earlier this month, he broke the 10k record with 26 minutes 11 seconds.
