You choose to run the famous Rim to Rim to Rim (R2R2R) distance of 50 miles or do double (100 miles). This virtual challenge is based on one of the world's most famous running routes - running the Grand Canyon. You choose during the month how far you wish to run. We have awesome 50 mile and 100 mile medals. If you are feeling great and intend to do 100 miles, that's fine. If 50 is a realistic target and you can achieve that, that's fine too. You simply send us a .jpeg and submit evidence to verification@fitwins, as explained here.
You can read why many runners are obsessed with the challenge of running the Grand Canyon here.
Rob@Fitwins is in the video on the right and recently ran the route in one day. We will be including more footage of Rob's run on our Youtube Channel.
Virtual challenges? What are they? We select a distance and link to a global location - a virtual route. We select different challenges each month and design a bespoke, limited edition medal. All medals will reflect our challenge selection, are unique, and will be a great addition to your medal collection. Our challenges.
Fun fact: The Battle of Marathon involved a runner called Pheidippides running from Marathon to Athens to deliver news of a Greek victory over an invading Persian army. Lots of people run marathons in places all over the world and dedicate themselves to running a marathon (which is based on the distance from Marathon to Athens). You don't need to be in Marathon, Greece to run one.
Similarly, for our challenges, whether you complete the distance on the treadmill, use your local running route, or walk the distance with friends...we don't mind. We'll send you your awesome 'Grand Canyon' medal when you've done it.
It's awesome...just like you!
