We’d love for all you TRLBLZRS to join us in Journey’s latest and greatest virtual challenge yet: TRLBLZR 150.

Click here if you’re asking… “What is a Journey?”

Who can join?
Anyone. Yes, anyone. Rider, non-rider… if you want some extra motivation to get out there and stay fit, get more fit, start getting fit, or just love being outside & moving through the world however you choose (non-motorized, of course) this is for you.

What’s the goal?
The goal is 150 miles. Those miles can be ridden, walked, hiked, biked, kayaked, roller-skated, you can even track your swimming distance (we recommend you use Strava as you can connect your app to Journeys). See below for more detailed information.

What’s the cost?
$35. But, if you’re a Top Trail Premium or Basic member, it’s $30. And remember, we give a portion of each entry fee to our giving partner, Back Country Horsemen of America. The portion amount depends on how many entries — so the more participants in the challenge — the more we give to BCHA.

Will I get a cool award tag?
Yes. You will get your award tag regardless of whether you complete the challenge or not. You should receive your award tag in the second half of the challenge period. If you’re still working on your goal when you get your award tag — that’s a good time to wear it — for extra motivation!!
