Under slab plumbing

Hi, i have a run of 4 inch sched 40 from a tiolet/laundry area that will travel diagonally under the basement concrete floor a distance of 44 feet before reaching a cleanout. There is no opportunity to provide an intermediate cleanout other than to bring a combo riser to the surface somewhere in between and install a screw on cap or something. THIS WOULD BE OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOOR WHICH I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO AVOID. Will this be necessary or will the 44 feet of pipe be ok? Or any other ideas?

Under slab plumbing

you will be fine. The length allowed for 4" pipe between cleanouts is 75 feet.
