Blue Ridge Mountains (NC) Fall 2019

An hour and a half outside Asheville, the dense laurels, rough terrain and vista views of the Blue Ridge Mountains set the stage for a mental and physical challenge that you will not soon forget.  Experience the ultimate test of character in the jungle like forest  where the original mountain men staked their claim. Thousands of men before you have taken the challenge and survived the life changing experience of a 4th Musketeer Xtreme Character Challenge.

For 72 hours, you will be placed on a team of eight to ten men to battle with the elements, with yourself, and with God.  Eventually there is only one winner!  Weekends are physically challenging with great spiritual lessons where you will examine your life and your purpose. You will hike many miles but ultimately it is the 18 inches between head and heart that truly matters.

Important information

The following provides important information concerning any request to cancel, substitute another person or request a refund of fees for the events. In an effort to conserve and be good stewards of the budget and expenses of The 4th Musketeer, the following policies are in place.

Refund & Participant Cancellation Policy: 

All payments for a 4M XCC event are non-refundable if participant cancels less than 30 days prior to the event.  The payment may be used for another US XCC location, or transfered to another participant within 12 months of time of cancellation (minus a $25 administrative fee).  If the registration fee is not used for an XCC within one year, funds will be applied to the ongoing ministry efforts of the 4th Musketeer.   If a participant cancels 31 days or more from the event start date, they may choose to receive a full refund minus a $25 administrative fee or transfer as stated above with no administrative fee.

XCC Cancellation:

If 4M must cancel an event for any reason, all registrants will receive a full refund of fees paid minus a $25 administrative fee. Participants can also transfer their funds to a future XCC. 4M or any of its event partners are not and will not be held responsible for the reimbursement of costs incurred due to travel expenses for the event (for example: cancellation/flight change fees or rental fees for traveling to or from the event.)

Registration & Payment Policy for Events:

If full payment is not received 14 days prior to event, registrants spot is no longer secured and can at 4M’s discretion be given to a full paying registrant.  Once full payment is received, registrants spot is secured. By registering for the XCC, you are assuming financial responsibility for the trip and are authorizing 4M to purchase food and supplies needed for the event on your behalf.
