XF 1.1 Running a Usergroup Promotion cron job

I created a new usergroup and went to Tools > Cron Entries > User Group Promotion > Run and the entry runs instantly (no delay, within a second) but no users are updated to join the new usergroup. I'm guessing it should take a lot longer than that.

Am I doing something wrong?

You would need to modify the code of the cron (which may trigger other issues). I could really only recommend the standard method that's part of 1.2.
