Racery Results: 2020 Tripawds Virtual Marathon

The Racery Results are in! Three paws up to everyone who participated in the 2020 Tripawds Virtual Marathon. This third annual fundraising “race” was our most successful yet. Team Tripawds joined the fun from all around the country thanks to Racery: The Virtual Race Platform.

Team Tripawds 2020

From August 22nd through September 7th, 25 participants logged a total of 1,151.6 miles on our virtual marathon course across the Continental Divide. Thanks to the Racery app, “racers” were able to perform all sorts of exercises or chores which were automatically converted to miles when logging the activity.

  1. I am thrilled the race brought in even more than the goal.. that is fabulous news! It was a lot of work, and a lot of fun 🙂 FWIW this was so motivating for me, as I am sure it was for many, thank you. I know for myself that I needed something to get me out of my rut. This has been a very long and stressful year for all of us, and now that I have poked my head out of the sand for the race, I am continuing to stay active and finally have the motivation and energy to get caught up on things.

    • Thanks Jackie, we are pretty excited about it too. I’m so glad that the race helped you feel better about things. The ruff year we’ve all had is one reason we decided to have it earlier than usual, to just bring some joy into people & pets’ lives. Thanks to your help, it sounds like we succeeded! Hop on and take care!
