Trails for Tails Virtual Race

Monday, May 10, 2021 - 8:00am to Monday, July 5, 2021 - 8:00am

What could feel better right now than getting out of the house, getting some fresh air and getting healthier? Nothing, right?

HSTT’s Trails for Tails virtual race is the perfect opportunity to motivate and achieve your fitness goals and do something wonderful for yourself! BONUS: every step taken, stair climbed, pedal pushed or swipe of the vacuum will help our community's homeless pets. That's right; even household chores count!

The run is available for registration from May 10th - July 5th, 2021 and only $25 to join. HSTT has set a Fitness Goal of 10,000 miles and a Fundraising Goal of $20,000. In honor of our service area, which spans North to South Lake Tahoe, we encourage our runners, steppers and doers to complete a full 170 miles within the 8 week challenge – the distance of one of our local favorites – the Tahoe Rim Trail.

Participate however you are comfortable! You can walk your dog, run, sprint, yoga, dance in your kitchen - or a mixture of them all! In this race, YOU decide how to achieve your fitness goals while raising money to support our 4-legged friends! Though this run is mainly for paws - not applause, we still want to highlight your achievement. Each registrant will receive a pair of our one-of-a-kind wool running socks!






Of course, this is also an excellent opportunity for runners to help HSTT fundraise. Through Peer-to-Peer fundraising, you can help raise funds that will give our community’s homeless pets a second chance at the happy life they all deserve. Invite your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to take part in the challenge (from a safe distance) or donate to your fundraiser.

To say THANK YOU, participants that raise $250.00 or more throughout the campaign will receive a Unisex HSTT Rise Design Hoodie of your choice.










Our Top Dog Finnishers will also receive special prizes from The Finnish Long Drink!

Top Fundraiser: Long Drink Grizzly 15 Quart Rotomolded Cooler with goodies - Total prize valued over $200!

Top Distance: Long Drink Clothing & Swag for your next adventure

Top Fundraising Business Team: Cases of Long Drink and HSTT Cork hats to stay cool while celebrating your success!



How do I register?

Your registration fee is used to help support our mission of saving and improving the lives of pets through adoption, community spay/neuter, Pet Pantry and humane education programs.

We have designed our Registration Donation Levels to fit everyone. Your donation will also count towards your overall fundraising goals. You can sign-up as an individual or as a team and track your progress. After that, you have 8 weeks to complete your distance and fundraising goals, encouraging and challenging your friends and family to join you in getting active and raising lifesaving funds. HSTT will be there to help and encourage you every STEP of the way! You also have the option of adding a fundraising element while you race. There's absolutely no obligation or pressure to fundraise; we've provided the choice in case you can.



How do I count my steps?

You can use your phone, pedometer or smartwatch to count your steps. Just update your steps based on the activity you do throughout the challenge. Choose your favorite activity, and take part wherever you are to reach 170 miles with us!
