The same year, after having graduated from the University of Manchester with a PhD in textile chemistry, Dr Ronhal Hill started a company named Ron Hill Sports, which pioneered various products including wrap-over shorts, mesh vests, waterproof running jackets, and reflective strips.

Dr. Hill did not miss a day of running between 20 December 1964 and 30 January 2017 – a total of 52 years and 39 days.

It all began in December 1964 !

Ron Hill ran every day for 52 years and 39 days (19032 consecutive days) – the longest running streak in history.

Having started the streak to improve his marathon performance, Ron's back-to-back training method led him to international success and competition in over 115 countries around the world.

His enthusiasm and commitment to running every day inspires us! Every October we as a community come together to share and motivate each other to try a run streak during the month.
