GRAND SLAM CHALLENGE

(This is an additional add on which is found in the ‘merchandise’ section of registration into a race)

This was a huge success in the past so we have decided to make it a permanent thing!

There are 2 Grand Slam options.

Simply complete the runs, submit your evidence and you’ll get the Grand Slam medals.

Note: Each distance must be completed separately.

Register for your desired race event, participate in that event on race day (or virtual if you are a virtual participant)

Then complete the remainder of distances virtually and submit your times to the race director.

All distances must be completed during the virtual run dates.
