Dawn2Dusk – Virtual Event – Running or Cycling – 3 Person Team Event
This is a team event. A team consists of three people only. You must enter your team into one of two disciplines. These are;
– On Foot (running/walking)
Your team cannot mix disciplines (ie if you enter your team ‘On Foot’, none of your team can cycle and vice versa).
You and your team must then see how many kilometers you can clock up between dawn and dusk. For the purposes of making this inclusive to all those around the world, the start and finish times are set at 06:00 (6am) and 18:00 (6pm), wherever you are taking on the challenge. You have 12 hours to go as far as you can. Your total distance will be the sum of the distance covered by all three of your team members.
Stefan, Mary and Jan cover 22km, 45km and 92km on foot. Their total distance and the one submitted to Ultra X will be 159km.
#Dawn2Dusk will take place on Saturday 13th March 2021.
As this is a truly global challenge we want to ensure that as many people around the planet can take part. The challenge is from dawn to dusk! You have 12 hours commencing at 06:00 and finishing at 18:00, wherever you are in the world.
