Junior Achievement is hosting its first ever virtual marathon, the JA Tour of NE. This race takes participants on a virtual tour of Nebraska as they move along the 26.2-mile path that passes notable Nebraska landmarks. See Nebraska like never before from the comfort of your own home, neighborhood or gym!
Any form of exercise can be logged on our online race platform – walking, yoga, biking, yard work, etc. – so anyone at any fitness level can get involved! It’s the perfect time to come together, be fit, and have some fun for a great cause!
The JA Tour of NE runs from June 15-July 15. The cost to register is $25 and includes a virtual bib number, virtual finisher certificate, and access to the online platform to log exercise. Children 12 and under can use the code “KIDS” to receive a $10 discount. Participants can also raise additional funds to support Junior Achievement programs, with prizes available for top fundraisers.
Participants can register as an individual or form a team. Teams can be made up of friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, you name it! This is a great way to engage in community during a time when many are physically distanced.
Top contestants in four categories will be awarded prizes: Largest Team, Highest Total Mileage, Most Funds Raised, and Best Race Selfie (use hashtag #JATourofNE)
