Moon Joggers Universal Tour & Rankings Challenge
The Moon Jogger Universal Tour! Each year presents a bigger challenge for the group. Each Moon Jogger contributes to our group goal and each Moon Jogger’s contribution is very valuable to the group. But, what about the individual goals? This is where rankings come in.
What ranking will you achieve?
When you log your first mile you achieve your first ranking in Moon Jogger land, and you become an “Official Moon Jogger!” Once you achieve becoming an official Moon Jogger you open the door to your next target reached at 100 miles: Space Ranger. The ranking you achieve does not reset year after year, so you continue going after a new ranking and shooting for your next target. These rankings are for the entire Universal Tour.
As you move through the rankings of Moon Joggers Universal Tour, be sure to get an official ranking tag/button each ranking your achieve! See how many you collect as we journey through our solar system!
For Official MJ, Space Ranger and Cadet you can order a dog tag for each ranking. After that, you can order a button for each ranking achieved! If you would like to go back and order buttons for all of the rankings you have already passed, that is totally fine as well.
What are the rankings?
***These rankings are from when you start logging miles on Moon Joggers. So if you started with us on January 1, 2013, your miles accumulate from January 1, 2013. They don’t reset every year.
