The Journey

We crafted a fully-integrated digital campaign to tell the story of endurance athlete Jason Lester, his 4,800 mile journey and Nike Better World.

On March 19th 2012, ultra-endurance athlete, Jason Lester, embarked on the Journey for a Better World. He ran and biked over 4,800 miles. Our goal was to share his journey with the world.

To document Jason's coast to coast trek, we launched a full website experience centered around his biggest daily moments. With a simple scroll, users were chronologically transported through these moments, all the way back to the journey's kickoff in New York City. We kept followers informed with important stats like Jason's current location, elevation, miles traveled and amount of NikeFuel earned. An interactive map showed the full scope of Jason's travels and helped viewers stay connected to his mission.
