On average, respondents live 7.47 miles (12 km) away from their workplace.
The average run commute is between 3 – 7 miles (4.8 – 11.2 km).
93% of run commuters have run with a backpack at some time in the past, while 77% continue to do so regularly.
11 respondents run with laptops.
A majority of respondents keep hygiene items (72%), and an extra set of work clothes, including shoes, at the office (~65%).
More than two-thirds of run commuters have access to a shower at their office, but nearly the same amount say that they would still run if none were available.
Aside from running to work, nearly one-fifth of respondents use running to pick up groceries and run errands. 14% occasionally run to meet friends.
An equal number of respondents have run to the pub as have run to the library.
