These 25 memes about the 5k run challenge can be enjoyed without moving at all

Wow, we really are lazy


The ‘Run for Heroes’ challenge is everywhere on Instagram. It includes running 5k, nominating five other friends to do it and donating £5 to the NHS after. All that sounds quite simple, but share a little thought for those in society who literally couldn’t do that if they tried. The run 5k memes on Twitter prove they are an alliance, the collection of people who are wondering – when on Earth did everyone get this fit? 

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that they don’t want to raise money for the NHS, it’s just having not run since P.E lessons at school it just simply isn’t doable without passing out and injuring yourself. And yes, you probably could walk the entire time but if you crop the screenshot of your time and distance everyone will KNOW.
