    swimming is sooo much more fun....

    Rep:
    I love the mile as a run- short enough to not have to worry about pacing too much so you can just go flat out, but at the same time long enough to leave you feeling like you're made of jelly once you've done so. A mile cross country- even better!

    Kayaking or horseback (preferably across some middle-of-nowhere mountains in Asia) would also do. I find swimming a mile a bit of a slog.

    Rep:
    A mile isn't really that far, just under 6 minutes of running. Anyone of reasonable fitness should be able to do it in under 10 minutes

    I'd rather run it, because it would take longer to get a bike out, get helmet on, get onto bike, and all that faff about THEN cycle it. Running is simple

    But I think someone else said run THEN cycle, that sounds good....and do it a number of times

    Run a mile??!!! :O

    It took me like 14mins XD

    Im so slow...
    Indeed, what's wrong with running it? That's how I'd usually do it.

    Rep:
    Coincidentally I'm just back from the gym after doing 5 miles on a treadmill, if I HAD to do another mile I'd cycle it, so much quicker

    Rep:
    By car.

    Apart from cycling, running it is much easier.

    Cycling requires less work and is quicker.

    So cycling.

    I see. I thought that was a strange message.

    Rep:
    Depends on the reason. If it's for fitness then running or swimming but if its for convenience then obviously cycling as a mile on a bike is nothing provided you have a decent bike.

    Other. Skis. Downhill. Takes about 90seconds on the right hill. Job's a good'un.
    This is what I thought of when I read the OP.

    Similarly, although I haven't done it, I am sure it would be pretty fun to do a mile in freefall from a plane before opening the chute and doing another, more chilled mile of descent.

    Rep:
    Rowing.

    What's wrong is that some people think that a mile is some insane distance that they need sponsorship and weeks of training for in order to even consider running/walking it :rolleyes: Unfortunately that is the state of some peoples' fitness in this country

    Ha, I see.

    It's nothing at all if you run long distances.

    But I guess for some it's a struggle...however this might be due to health issues rather than their fitness levels..

    I'm intrigued as to how people would rather do a mile, I'd either cycle or swim it. I've never really liked running.
    How would you do a mile?
    I would run in a competition I did this at school a few weeks ago got 8mins12seconds but if I was on my own.I wouldn't cycle or swim a mile because I can't cycle or swim I mile-I can swim 100m tough but I can't cycle 0.1m.

    Rep:
    i would fly

    Rep:
    Run for a minute or so then finish the rest by ambulance.

    Rep:
