Is this the most extreme new year’s resolution in Redbridge?

How’s this for a new year’s resolution? A 53-year-old man has decided to run a metre for every minute there is in a year.

Harmander Singh, of Wellesley Road, Ilford started his challenge by running the Valentines Parkrun on Tuesday (1).

As a year is 365.25 days long this equate to 525960 minutes which is the distance he plans to run in metres.

Furthermore he plans to complete the 525km in under 60 hours.

His progress will be updated on with all money raised donated to charity.
