The Lincoln Trail-A-Thon is a challenge to run, jog or walk all the trails within the Lincoln City limits in 2023. When you finish you will have covered 78 miles of trails. This fun challenge was started to inspire individuals to be healthier by getting outdoors to enjoy the amazing trails system in Lincoln. But even more, it is to: (1) GIVE back (2) EXPLORE new trails (3) CONQUER a common goal.
We are collecting a $25 entry fee to GIVE BACK to the Great Plains Trails Network (GPTN) to help them build the Rock Island/Jamaica North Trail connector bridge. But there is something in it for you too - the first 78 registrants receive a free JUNK headband thanks to our sponsors University of Nebraska Federal Credit Union & Slim Chickens - [WE HAVE MET THIS GOAL - we will be reaching out to the first 78 registrants this weekend to let you know where and how to pick up your headband, thank you for participating.] All entries receive a t-shirt with the Lincoln Trail-A-Thon logo and a chance to win a monthly prize. Click here to check out the t-shirts - you choose blue or green!
The first 250 registrants receive:
(a) logo sticker decal thanks to ASB
(b) $10 coupon to the Lincoln Running Co.
(c) Book Mark with discount code on signed book by NY Times best selling author, Tosca Lee, a Nebraska native
(d) 25% coupon for Rapid Fire Relief products

NOTE: T-shirts will not be pre-ordered. They will be ordered based on registration numbers throughout the year. The first order will be placed in January. Participants will be notified by email when t-shirts are ready to be picked up at Trinity Chiropractic.
Each month a different trail will be explored. You may choose to follow this plan or rearrange it to create a plan that fits your schedule. The plan was created to do two things, keep the exploration to a reasonable distance and keep trails grouped together based on location. Each month, a reminder of which trail(s), trail maps and tips will be posted on the Lincoln Trails-A-Thon event page. This will keep everyone moving in the same direction. Note: the urban limestone trails leading out of Lincoln were not included. For all social media, please use: #lnktrails2023.
Each month an object (colorful running signs sponsored by Rapid Fire Relief) will be hidden on one of the trails. This will be posted via Lincoln Trail-a-thon Facebook page. The first person to find the object then post a selfie with the object on our Facebook page will win a prize. Make sure to use: #lnktrails2023. Monthly prizes will include a free Lincoln marathon entry, Trinity Fitness membership, Fitbit, massage gift certificates, book lovers basket, gift cards to local businesses and much more. You will not want to miss out!
NOTE: Only registered participants are eligible for the monthly prizes
