The Event

The Chinese New Year is in February this year and it is the Ox's turn to take centre stage. Are you ready to keep your New Year fitness going through February with this accumulation challenge? We have a great medal lined up for this Challenge event with three distances to choose from - 30km, 60km and 100km. You will have four weeks to accumulate your chosen distance (all of February) so you can spread it out however you wish.

The Reward

We've gone for the traditional Chinese look for this 'Year of the Ox' medal. A Chinese style home with the lanterns hanging on the roof (if you can't read mandarin, the lanterns say 'Happy New Year'). We have a large 3D ox (not in proportion to the house!) and an epoxy badge in the top left which states the distance you chose. The distance is written in English and mandarin. It's a very traditional medal with the colours that depict the Chinese New year.

The Prizes

For each Zodiac challenge, we will be giving out ten (10) prize packs worth £25! Everyone who completes their distance before the end of the event will be in the lucky draw to win one of the packs of RFTW goodies.
