How does the 49IN49 Challenge work?2020-09-18T17:38:18+00:00

Once you register, you have until November 8th to register and a total of 49 days to complete 49 miles virtually, on your own time. You may run, walk, or even roll! You do not need to complete all 49 miles at once. We encourage you to log your results to our Leaderboard as you complete your distances to be ranked among other 49ers fans. Every week, we will send an interactive task or video from your Team Captain to keep you motivated throughout the Challenge!

How do I choose my Team Captain?2020-09-18T17:43:37+00:00

If you register as a Gold Rusher, you will be able to choose your Team Captain at checkout. If you register as a Red Runner, you will randomly be assigned to a Team Captain. Those registered prior to September 20th will receive their team assignments on September 19th. Red Runners who register after September 20th will be “Drafted” to a team and notified by email every Monday/Tuesday of the following week.

When will I receive my items?2020-09-18T17:45:04+00:00

We will mail you your items in two different packages. At the beginning of the series, you will receive your bib, FanBand, and face mask (Gold Rushers or first 250 Red Runners). At the end of the series, we will ship you your medal and team tee. Team tees are specific to your Team Captain.

Is it too late to sign up?2020-09-18T17:45:36+00:00

No we encourage you to register at any point prior to the conclusion of the Challenge on November 8th.
