FAQs

We put together answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions that we haven't been able to answer then please feel free to get in touch with me directly

HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR A VIRTUAL CHALLENGE?

We have a simple 3 step process to follow:

  1. Pick your challenge, package and pay

  2. Join a challenge and setup your account profile

  3. Link your fitness device, choose your activity and get started

CAN I SIGN UP TO MORE THAN ONE VIRTUAL CHALLENGE?

Yes! Each challenge is a separate event and therefore you can participate in any number of them at the same time. Your daily miles will count towards all your virtual challenges, we have a number of people who have signed up to all challenges, given themselves the chance of completing the entire USA challenge route

CAN I JOIN A CHALLENGE AT ANYTIME?

Yes, however we will close entries around 6 months prior to the end of the challenge.

CAN I BACKDATE MY MILES TO START OF THE CHALLENGE?

No, we believe you have plenty of time to complete your challenge. With our entry cut off around 6 months prior to the end of every challenge in place this ensures you get the best chance of doing this.

CAN I GET A REFUND AS I'VE CHANGE MY MIND, OR I'M INJURED?

You have the right to change your mind anytime up to 14 days after you have purchased your virtual challenge. We will deduct a £10.00 fee from all refunds to cover the none refundable cost of the MyVirtualMission platform registration. After 14 days, no refunds will be given and you will not be entitled to any of the rewards.

WHEN WILL MY REWARDS BE SENT OUT TO ME?

Once you have completed your challenge, it normally takes between 3-5 days for your rewards to be sent out via 2nd Class post. If you don't receive your rewards, please get in touch with Pat in our Shop Team via email at shop@the401challenge.co.uk.
