- + What is RaceFor?
RaceFor is a mobile application that lets you create your own virtual charity races, or compete in someone else’s, anytime, anywhere.
To create a Race, all you need is a PayPal account. You set the distance, minimum donation, and the dates the race is active. Racers join by making a donation and race whenever, wherever they want.
RaceFor’s GPS-tracks time, distance, pace and speed as they race, and stores private stats for the racer, and global stats the RaceFor community as a whole.
- + Can I create a Race for anything I want?
That’s up to you. RaceFor doesn’t actively review or restrict what you enter for your cause. However, we reserve the right to remove any Race, Racer, or Organizer from the RaceFor network if we deem it necessary or advisable. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more details.
