What Our RaceBuddies Say

“Gemeinsame Zeit mit Yuki zu verbringen, ist für uns das Wertvollste am Tag. Dabei noch Gutes zu tun, macht es rundum perfekt. Wir lieben es, Racebuddies zu sein und freuen uns auf alle Abenteuer, die wir noch gemeinsam erleben dürfen.”

“Ich bin täglich lange mit meinen Beagle Jungs unterwegs, um so mehr Spass macht es, etwas Gutes zu tun und belohnt zu werden. Die Medaillen sind ein toller Ansporn und werden nun gesammelt.”


“Roxy and I visited both Yellowstone and the Apostle Islands in real life – we signed up to get those cool medals as a remembrance. And it’s worth it!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Virtual races are almost like in-person events, just that you can participate virtually from anywhere in the world. Complete the races anywhere, at your own pace & time frame.

Everyone can participate! It doesn’t matter how young, fit, or abled you are; everyone is welcome. Also, if you’re an introvert or shy away from significant group events but still want to complete a run and get your race bling, you came to the right place! Finishing a required distance and earning a reward (medal) is a great motivation to start your fitness journey and improve your health.

You can complete the race by yourself, with family or friends, and, of course, with your dog. 

Join us anyway! We’re offering every participant to join our private Facebook group to connect with other RaceBuddies. Share experiences, and photos of your walks and furry buddies, ask for advice or give tips, hold each other accountable, or buddy up with locals to complete the races together.
