When does registration open and close?
Registration opens in January 2022 and it’s FREE for the first 1500 participants. Registration will close once we’ve reached capacity, so make sure you register soon to reserve your spot!
How many miles do we have to go?
This is not a race and there is no set distance. Make yourself a personal goal and travel as far as you’d like! Push your limits and enjoy the views. And remember, any physical activity counts and will automatically be converted into walking miles.

Are we doing this in teams or individually?
We’re logging activity individually, but please use the messageboard and join the Facebook group to help encourage each other! You can also create/join a “group” to help you keep track of 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!
How do I track my activity?
Once the adventure starts on February 14th, you’ll log your activity each day (or several times a day!) on the Racery website or download Racery’s iOS App or Android App. Click the Log Activities tab, fill in the information, then hit submit! Your activity will automatically be converted into “walking miles”
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 Racery.
How are activities converted into walking miles?
Here’s a message from Racery: Because we’re trying to create a roughly even playing field, all activity conversions are based on a translation of activity time into steps into miles. Thus, an hour of moderate cycling will register as 4.83 miles on the route, while the same period of breaststroke will register as 5.14 miles. The conversions appear extremely precise but are in fact necessarily fuzzy — there is as yet no way to affordably and scientifically equate all these activities. Learn more here.
How do I delete an activity?
On a desktop computer…
Click your picture/initials in the top right corner.
Click my bio.
Find the activity you wish to delete.
Click the gear icon.
Then you can head back to the Log Activities section of the Racery page and log the activity again with the correct miles/minutes.
On the mobile app…
Click My Logs.
Click the log’s date.
I’m not a fan of cold weather, any tips?
We hear you, and that’s partly why this Adventure is taking place in February – to motivate you to move even during the winter! Check out Dr. Sabgir’s recent newsletters with tips for indoor activities and outdoor activities in cold weather. The awesome thing about Racery is that any form of physical activity counts and will automatically convert to “walking miles”. You can walk, run, bike, do an indoor video workout, etc.

I’m new to Walk with a Doc – can you tell me more about it?
As an international non-profit organization, Walk with a Doc is committed to inspiring communities through movement and conversation with FREE physician-led walking groups. While these walking groups typically meet in-person throughout the year in over 500 communities around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many of our chapters to press pause. This virtual event is an opportunity for us to continue to move, connect, and learn about health in a safe way! Learn more about Walk with a Doc here.
