The Biggest Loser RunWalk race series offers a motivational, non-intimidating race experience at multiple premier destination locations across the country and throughout the year. Organized by former contestants of “The Biggest Loser,” Dan and Jackie Evans, the race series includes a variety of race distances, including 5K’s, 10K’s, Half Marathons, Off-Road Challenges and Kids’ Races. The Biggest Loser RunWalk race series encourages people of all fitness levels to achieve their fitness goals.
As part of the 2015 race series experience, race organizers have been working with RaceJoy to ensure course maps for each RunWalk event are loaded into the RaceJoy platform so that participants can add to their race experience with its race-centric features like real-time GPS tracking, progress alerts at every mile and fun audio cheers. Each of The Biggest Loser RunWalk 2015 races will be available in RaceJoy.
Many who participate in The Biggest Loser RunWalk races have put forth tremendous determination and discipline to get to race day. For some, this will be their very first race and it is a special day that can be filled with an uncertain anticipation combined with a “Let’s Do This!” excitement. RaceJoy helps to add to this very special day by connecting the runner/walker with their friends and family throughout the race experience.

How fast a participant goes may vary, but regardless of their fitness level, each have a common goal: Start and finish the race. What happens in between varies by the runner or walker. It varies based on their individual fitness levels, emotional and physical state and even what they had to eat that day. RaceJoy’s main role is to help with the time between start and finish. To encourage the participant by giving them real-time updates on their progress and motivate them with the knowledge that others are tracking their progress live and sharing in their experience even if they aren’t there at the race site. There is something uniquely motivating about knowing someone is watching you. It confirms they care about you and what you are going through and helps propel you along.
