The primary purpose of SS4M is to promote a positive active lifestyle, to use running to foster a sense of community and healthy competition and to introduce the joy of running to people who have never considered it.
Because of this purpose, the Southern Sundown 4 Miler Team Challenge utilizes unique roster requirements that encourage runners from every age, gender and skill level to join up. We welcome coworkers, work out buddies, families, club members, running groups, whomever .............. to form a team and have fun competing in the SS4M Team Challenge.
