Our Story

About The RaceBuddies


Linda and Jen, cousins, founded “the RaceBuddies” for dog owners just like them, those who love bonding with their fur babies while staying active in the great outdoor.  For people who enjoy walking, running, hiking, swimming, or just little strolls around the block with their furry friend. It doesn’t matter how fit YOU are, or if your dog is a puppy, an active adult, or a senior, that’s slowing down. What matters is the time spent together. 

Therefore we create virtual races across the beautiful American National Parks. You and your dog can track your daily activity and earn a beautiful, stunning medal. After your registration, your race package with the medals will be on the way to you. Join us on a fabulous, virtual dog race adventure and share photos with your RaceBuddy wearing your well-deserved bling!

Who Are We

Linda and her boyfriend, Martin, live in Germany and are avid hikers, travelers, and adventurers. Linda & Martin love to travel across Europe in a van, accompanied by their 8-months old daughter and their 4-year-old Bernese Mountain dog, Rudi.

Jen lives with her husband and two rescue dogs, Louie, Beagle/Jacky, and Border Collie/Spaniel, Penny, in the US. They enjoy a more quiet life but love road trips and spending as much time with their pups as possible. Though not a water dog per se, Louie loves kayaking and motorboat rides. Penny is a senior with some health issues and needs less adventurous activities. Since she still loves the outdoors, she often accompanies her family in her stroller, backpack, or, if required, wheelchair.
