The 2020 Trek Across Maine has gone virtual NOW through June 30th! Cycling is a great way to improve both your physical and mental health, while giving an extra boost to your immune system. We encourage you to participate in the virtual event as this is the perfect time to get outside while still practicing social distancing! Challenge yourself to stay active and support the American Lung Association’s work to support critical lung health research.
COVID-19 is a lung infection and we are working to minimize the risk to all, especially those with a lung disease like asthma, COPD or lung cancer—who are at higher risk for more severe symptoms or complications from COVID-19. Join us in accelerating the progress we’ve already made, including a breakthrough discovery that could inform coronavirus treatment strategies and help us fund additional groundbreaking research that can help mitigate COVID-19.
Who: Everyone! Not a cyclist? You can still sign up to do the virtual event and help support our cause!
What: If you choose to participate in the cycling portion of the virtual event, complete 60, 120 or 180 miles on an indoor or outdoor bike (or mix of both) at your own pace and in segments if preferred. All virtual participants that raise the minimum $250 by June 30th will receive an accomplishment medal and event t-shirt. You can earn incentives the more you raise!
When: Now through June 30th.
Where: Anywhere you’d like, just make sure to practice social distancing at all times.
How: Visit the event website and register as a virtual participant for $15. You will receive everything you need to successfully complete the virtual event from there! Please take a moment to review our website for details and make sure to check out the FAQ Page.
Extras: Join our Trek Across Maine Group on Strava. You can connect your tracking devices to the Strava app so others can see your progress. We also encourage you to join our Trek Across Maine group to stay in touch with other participants and post photos of your ride/screenshots of your progress.
