Mark Zuckerberg wants you to run 587km with him this year

For those who love to run, here is another reason to do so in New Year. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced a new challenge for his 47 million followers on the social networking site: Running.

This is what Zuckerberg posted on his Facebook Wall:


Last year, Zuckerberg said that he enjoyed sharing “A Year of Books” with the Facebook community.

“We’ll call this year’s challenge ‘A Year of Running’. I’ve set up a public group where we can all discuss our running adventures and I’ll post periodically on my progress:,” he added.

Users can share their experiences on “A Year of Running” Facebook group.

Zuckerberg says he will post periodic updates there as well. So far, the group has more than 43,000 members.

“This is a lot of running, but it’s not a crazy amount. It’s a mile a day, and at a moderate pace it’s less than 10 minutes of running per day,” he posted.

“Here’s to a healthy 2016! – running,” he added.
