Why do it in 2020

2020: Run and complete three marathons over three consecutive days. Submit your results to Dynamic Running for verification.

The next time you come to do the 3M3D Grand slam in Cairns your finish time for that race will also be your finish time for your virtual race from 2020.

For example: You turn up in 2021, and finish the grand slam in 20:18:19. Regardless of what your time was for the virtual 2020 race, you will be allocated 20:18:19 for that race too.

These times will then be used to calculate your cumulative time for your 3M3D grand slams.

Here is an example:

Competitor 1 has completed four 3M3D grand slams in a cumulative time of 86.53.43. They are in line to receive permanent bib number 17.

Competitor 2 has completed four 3M3D grand slams in a cumulative time of 86.30.45. They are in line to receive permanent bib number 16.

You get permanent bib number 17.You finish your 5th 3M3D grand slam in 19:57:51.     Your cumulative time for the five races is 106:28:36. You get permanent bib number 16.

For those going for their permanent bib numbers – this is an opportunity for you to jump ahead of others who opt not to do the virtual race this year.

Lorraine will be doing her 9th 3M3D as a virtual run this year, so poor Delmsie (also currently also on 8 3M3Ds) has had to step up to join in so that he too will be on his 10th race for 2021!
