Plus, you have the chance to earn a brand new headband, the 2020 finisher t-shirt, a 10 year anniversary headband, and a monthly Challenge coin. We’ve been incredibly impressed with the dedication and motivation of the first ever intake of Challengers who have faced this new fitness experience with the relish of…a group of Mudders who have been under lockdown and don’t have any events until 2021… THE NUMBERS Only one week in and Challengers around the world are stacking up some serious stats. We’re talking 60,940 miles of running, walking and cycling and 1,158,348 feet of elevation climbed. We’re doing this on stairs, hills, treadmills, and actual mountains. Likewise, who knows how many eggs have been downed.
