Do I really have to complete four marathons?

This is a two-week personal challenge. You can set yourself a goal to walk one, two, three, or all four marathons. Once you complete one, you’ll move on to the next! Plus, any physical activity counts. You can walk, run, bike, swim, garden, etc. and your activity is automatically converted into “walking miles”.

What is a group and how do I create one?

Groups are simply a way for you to keep track of other participants. You can create a group for your family, friends, coworkers, etc. Here’s how:

1. Head to our Racery page
2. Login (if you’re not already)
3. In the top right corner, click your picture
4. Click “my bio”
5. Click “EDIT MY BIO”
6. You should be able to add or remove groups.

After the group is created, you can easily share the link with others that you’d like to join!

Can I connect my wearable device?

Feel free to use your wearable to help you keep track of your activity, but you’ll still have to manually input the information into the Racery website or mobile app.

Can I donate myself instead of fundraise?

Of course! You can make a donation when you sign up, or if you’re already registered you can click the “fundraising” tab then search for your name.

Where does my money go?

A portion of registration as well as 100% of every donation will go to Walk with a Doc, a 501(c) (3) that inspires communities through movement and conversation. You can help people across the globe take steps to better health!
