The yummy goodness of the pawliday season is almost here. And if you're like most of us, you know it's easy to pack on the pounds. But the good news is we have an easy way to keep the weight off and raise awareness for Tripawds Foundation too: The 2018 Walk or Run for Tripawds Foundation Virtual Race!
Anyone Can Walk or Run for Tripawds Foundation
Tripawds Foundation is hosting a 26.2 mile "Virtual Marathon" happening between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, 2018. Don't let the word "race" scare you: this fun event happens over 39 consecutive days!
Just walk or run any time with the Tripawds Nation beginning on November 22, 2018 at 12:00AM EST, and you can help raise awareness and encourage people to donate to Tripawds Foundation.
Our friends at Racery made us a course that takes us from Arlington, Virginia to the Washington Monument. After all, what better place to raise Tripawds Community awareness than the U.S. capitol?
The Tripawds Virtual Race Happens in Your Town
Walk or run in your own neighborhood, or even on a treadmill at the gym. There's no running experience necessary and you've got 39 days to complete the course!
Do it while walking your Tripawd or working out. Do it to keep the pawliday pounds off and stay fit. Just DO IT!
How to Join Team Tripawds
- Sign up at the Walk or Run for the Tripawds Nation home page.
- Walk or run anywhere (seriously, anywhere or even on a treadmill!).
- You track your activity by a GPS watch, app, sundial, change in the tides, or any other means. Mileage is based on the honor system.
- Reply to a daily email with your activity (yea! you’re smokin’ fast!).
- Your place on the race map is plotted instantly (you get a really cool avatar!).
- Your total mileage, runs/week, and miles/week are also tracked.
Won't you join Team Tripawds? Sign up and get your friends to sign up too! The race entry fee is only $20 and $10 of every entry will go directly to Tripawds Foundation , so you're already helping out just by joining the team!
Once you join the team and start walking or running, you will be provided a link to share with your friends and family to help raise more funds to sponsor your participation. 100% of any funds you raise through Racery during this event will help Tripawds everywhere!
We think this is so much more fun than begging for donations to the Tripawds Foundation, don't you?
Come on, you know you want to do it. Be a Team Tripawds member, please sign up today.
Great question Jet!
We appreciate everyone who wants to run or donate, but yes, a person can donate more than the amount that one runner sign-up earns ($10 per runner). Make sense?
This link will take anyone directly to the donations area. Sponsor the team, a runner, or join in yourself, we are Thankful for all participants!
Oh yaaaaay! It's definitely not a race, so whatever you do is pawesome!
Our plan is to do at least .67 miles a day. Thank you for joining us!

Thanks to the fine folks at Racery: Virtual Challenges, "Looping" has been enabled so all runners and walkers can continue to have their miles tracked on the map, beginning again at the starting line once they complete their first full distance. Along the way, everyone receives postcards from milestone locations along the route through Washington, DC.
