Rules of 4x4x48
Yes there are rules. Participants have between 12:01 AM October 12th, 2018 and 12:59 PM November 13th, 2018 (Veterans Day) to complete your 48 hour streak. All entries must be GPS uploaded to the 2018 Fusion 4x4x48 to benefit Beyon Brave Strava Club page. No bicycles, skateboards, roller blades...just good old fashioned running. You can start your first "leg" at any time of day but you must start each subsequent "leg" within 4 hours of the time you started the previous leg. For example, if you start at Noon, the next run would be at 4PM, then 8PM, Midnight, 4AM, 8AM...No treadmill runs, you have to get outside and run...elements be damned! There will be people who ask "can I run all 48 miles at one time?" and the answer is NO. A big part of the challenge is the nature of having to spread the run out over 48 hours and go every 4 hours over and over again. If you are unable to finish the challenge you still won't go away empty handed, as you will get a Beyond Brave C3 T-shirt.
