CANCELLED: 4MPH Challenge Backyard Ultra | Up to 12.5 miles, Up to 37.5 miles, Up to 100 miles, Unlimited
New Location this Year!- The Great Shasta Rail Trail. It is made for distance!
Can you manage a 15 minute per mile pace on relatively benign trails? Of course you can! Most of you could do sub-10min/mile, many could do TWO miles in 15 minutes.
And in this race, that’s all you have to do! 15 minutes per mile. 4 MPH.
A secluded and beautiful 4-mile (2 miles out- 2 miles back) course along The Great Shasta Rail Trail. Any time under 60 minutes counts as success! When you finish, you can sit down, eat and drink, visit with other runners, whatever.
When the 60 minutes are up, head back the same way
Once again you have exactly 60 minutes to finish. And then…
You Get To Do It Again!
The first time that you fail to finish a 4 mile leg in 60 minutes, game over..
And if you do make it, congratulations, you’re tied for first place!
How many legs can you do? How many miles?
How long can you keep up a 4MPH pace?
Since everyone starts every lap together and hangs out together between laps, this is a very social event. As for the race yourself, whether your goal is one lap or 20, your main competition is yourself. How far can you go? And will you be able to come back next year and go further? No time limit, I’ll stick around as long as you keep up the 4MPH pace! (I’m not worried, I know that sleep deprivation will catch up with you eventually).Find out more »
