The UpRace was organised by VNG, a technology company from September 18 to October 11. The race’s attendees ran more than 3 million kilometres.
The UpRace’s number of attendees this year reached 114,947, double the organisation’s initial expectation.
Rather than racing in person, runners recorded their runs with a mobile application on the UpRace website.
The app and the website measured the cumulative distance, with each validated kilometre fetching donations of at least VND 1,000 from sponsoring companies.
The money raised for the four organisations via ZaloPay on UpRace’s Zalo account totalled more than VND114 million .
After the UpRace ended, ZaloPay remained on the organisation’s Zalo account for donations from the community.
Last year, the UpRace run attracted 32,000 people and raised VND6 billion ($258,500 ) for Newborns Vietnam, GreenViet and Vietseeds.
VNG started UpRace's Race for the Community in 2018. It provides technical assistance for the race.
