It’s not a race!

Walk, run, hop, ride, stroll, swim, or dance your way to the top! With the Racery app, you can easily convert many activities to miles. Simply log into your race dashboard or open the app and visit your 2024 Tripawds Virtual Marathon race. Enter your miles or activity, and watch your profile pic advance along the course. Get breathtaking views from Mount Everest along the way. And upload photos from your own home town.

Comment on the progress of others to cheer them on. And share your personal fundraising link to recruit more “runners” or solicit donations from friends and family. Most of all, remember: It’s not a race!

You’ll have nine days to log the 26.2 miles. But you don’t have to finish the entire course. Simply by participating, you’re a winner. And, you’re helping three legged dogs and cats.

Join Us Live!

We’ll be hosting more live streams throughout the 2024 Tripawds Virtual Marathon April 20-28, with shout outs to everyone and those teams leading the fundraising efforts. But remember, it’s not a race! 🙂

    • Hi Selina,
      I saw your question in the Racery app and answered there, but just for extra assurance…no, activity tracking didn’t start until yesterday. That’s OK if you guys already put it in though, no worries. Just repeat the course as you keep doing your activity until the end of the walk next Sunday. Does that make sense? Let me know.
