What is a Janathon?
It's a running competition but if you can't or don't want to run every day, you can still join in by cycling, walking, rowing, weights, swimming, jumping in puddles, building snowmen or whatever. Just do something every day in January.
Then blog about it on your blog within 24 hours. (You don't have to write a 20,000 word dissertation but a bit more than 'Today I ran 5 miles' would be good.) You are also encouraged to post about it on Twitter (using the #janathon tag), or on the Facebook page (links to your blog are fine; no one will think you're spamming). If you don't already have a blog, sign up for one free at Wordpress.
Yes. Janathon is a community thing and it'd be great if you could visit as many other blogs as you can and leave comments in support.
How long has it been going?
This is the third Janathon. Juneathon has been going since 2007.
Who else is doing it?
To see who's in this year, see the participants page.
I only just found out about it and we're halfway through January. Can I still join in?
Of course! You can join in at any time. Please be aware though that you probably won't win.
What do I win?
Although there were prizes in its first year, now it's just for fun.
