Pallet Foundation Virtual Race

October 15 - October 31

- $75

Takes Place Anytime from Anywhere Around the World

Our race to benefit the Pallet Foundation begins October 15 each year.  Unlike a traditional race, this one takes place wherever you are and whenever you want, anytime between October 15 to October 31. Our mission is to hit a fitness goal of traveling over 5,000 miles as a collective team, and raising $10,000 for the Pallet Foundation.

With a virtual race, runners, walkers, and bikers alike have over two weeks to complete their runs from anywhere around the globe! We set up a “Pallet Foundation” club with the Strava Club app to track your progress, or you can manually enter your activity.

Registation is open. Cost $75 includes a race tee shirt and tools to help you track your activity.

About the Race

Like any virtual race, runners, walkers, and bikers alike have over two weeks to complete their activity on your own pace from anywhere around the globe! It’s self-reporting or you can use our Stava app to help track activity. It’s a fun fundraiser that ends on Halloween. Have fun, post in social media and we’ll share your posts and stories.

For 2022, we traveled 5,154 miles across the globe and raised $8,440 for the Foundation. Special thanks to Pallet Alliance for matching their 2,340 in dollars.

Here are the 2022 leaders/winners.
