One of the main objectives of the Marathon Runner challenge is to join a track team. Unlike other sports clubs in BitLife that intake people from a young age, the track team is only available to join after getting into college. So, to become an athlete on the track team, players must indulge themselves in one or other sports and apply for the track team upon reaching college.
How to choose a character/life for the track team in BitLife
Before preparing for the track team in BitLife, you need to have an eligible character that is fit for athletics and sports. While creating your character, ensure that the person has a trait for Sports. You can find such a character randomly from the list or customize a life with the Sports attribute if you have the God Mode DLC.
How to prepare for the track team in BitLife
Since there are no junior divisions for the track team, you need to keep yourself agile and fit for the track team by playing other sports. Instead of joining something that appeals to you, we recommend going for the soccer club as it will help you finish other objectives of the Marathon Runner challenge. Join the soccer club during middle school and remain a part of it till you graduate high school. Apart from joining the soccer team, you can also keep fit/healthy by working out in a gym, meditating, and eating a balanced diet. You can access all these options from the Mind and Body section under the Activities tab.
How to apply for the college track team in BitLife
Once you graduate high school with some form of experience in playing sports, it is time to apply for a college seat. Head over to the Activities tab and choose the Education option. Get a seat in any major of your choice and begin college. Now, after joining, navigate to the Extra Curricular section and start giving tryouts for the track team. You will be immediately selected as you have the Sports trait and a decent experience in playing some form of sports in junior years. If not, age up and reapply for the team the following year.
