Race Across the USA: Omaha

We just passed Omaha, Nebraska on the Race Across the USA! We didn’t even stop for a break! At this rate, we’ll be to Chicago in no time! The “Talk Trash” comments have turned hilarious. If you aren’t running with us, you’re missing out, so I’m sharing them with you!

Starling Fitness (3 days ago): 1612.63 miles! We’ve hit the 1/2 point in Nebraska!

krisjames (2 days ago): Man, that’s alot of corn!

krisjames (yesterday): Are we there yet… Are we there yet… Are we there yet??

morgan711 (yesterday): goodworkkris

SOKAR (9 hours ago): yeah kris don’t make us stop this car 😉

Since Nike’s system isn’t set up for a cooperative event like this, you will need to check here at Starling Fitness for progress and winners.

We reserve the right to limit participation in the challenge due to our time constraints or the limits of Nike’s system.

This event is not sponsored by Nike or Apple. Starling Fitness will choose the winners based on total mileage. Our decisions are final.
