The Fast and the Furriest 5K Run and Walk
presented by Hollywood Feed
is a 3.1 mile run/walk event benefiting the
Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County.
Come enjoy one of the only dog-friendly races in Memphis!
This event features a scenic flat course in the area around the Humane Society friendly for running, walking, and strollers.
Dogs are not only welcome, we even award the fastest (and the furriest of course)!
The 2014 race will include a chip start and chip finish with two heats: The first heat will be for runners without dogs, the second will be for those WITH dogs. The awards will be based on fastest net/chip time so you don't have to start in the first heat to be considered for overall/age group awards.
Please clean up after your furry friend if necessary.
Join us for a fun post-race celebration that the entire family can enjoy with food, beer, music and fun! You can also meet and play with some of our adoptable pets!
Food, beverages, door prizes, and other goodies are available to all participants.
See "Schedule" page for packet pickup information.
