Jesper Kenn Olsen is on a personal quest to run around the world. He is currently on an epic leg of his journey from the southern tip of Chile and working his way to Newfoundland in Canada. During April we challenge you to follow in his footsteps and support him as he runs through the USA. We don't expect you to run as many miles as he does but give it a shot! You can follow his progress live at: - and show your support by joining this challenge.

We will conduct a drawing among our users to find 5 winners and provide them with Endomondo running gear. The more miles you have logged as of April 30th at Midnight CET, the better odds you'll have. You will get one ticket for every mile logged.

To ensure fair play, we will check the workouts of the winners. If we find any false workouts, we will conduct a new drawing to find another winner. The winners will receive an email and be announced on this page in early May.

Please note that we will not be able to follow discussions in this thread. Get help at or at Thanks.

Time to free your endorphins!

    Chill out and do your own workouts with honor. If technology throws you a curve, do your best to keep your honor.

    I certainly never intended to direct an accusation that anyone was cheating, I'm sure there are some like George who unintentionally end up getting awarded miles to their name that they did not do. Then you have the fakes who leave their apps on whilst they are on a flight, car, bike...etc.... For the genuine runners it is hard to compare your weekly mileage agaisnt others because of these eejits.

    @Andre Lesser I resent the implication that I cheated. As I explained in an earlier comment, there's a problem with the Android App that sent me over 970km into the Irish Sea, anyone with a brain looking at the route might have figured there was a problem. . I removed it yesterday from my workouts, but the Challenge doesn't update after month end so there's nothing I can do about it now. And why would I cheat, it caused all my PBs to set to 0 seconds, including the 10 mile, half marathon and marathon I've never run. Keep 'nob head' comments to yourself

    I think the only way to look at these challenges is to Challenge Yourself to do more than you have done before. Worrying about whether someone else cheated doesn't get you anywhere. If they purposely cheated they are only cheating themselves. I signed up to challenge Myself. I'm just grateful that after running more distance than I have ever done I can still walk pretty normally the next day.

    Like no1? GeorgeW who has hardly 30k total running workouts but shows as 1000k... yep. So what, let's not worry about those nob heads... There are a**holes everywhere, don't let 'em spoil your fun with sports...

    In the first two pages (#1 to 30), you can find at least 7 cheaters, nice!!!

    This was a good idea to get runners out and putting miles in, but I have lost all faith in Endomondo to regulate the fakes in their competitions. With all due respect to George, who may have had no hand in coming first. How can someone who according to his workouts run twice in April record a distance of >600 miles????
