Fast & Furriest 5k Run/Walk

The 5th Annual Fast & Furriest 5k Run/Walk

Many tail wags and doggy kisses to everyone who came out to participate in the 2017 5th Annual Fast & Furriest 5K Run/Walk! It was a beautiful day for a romp in the Midland City Forest with over 220 participants and over 90 dogs. Results for the 5K races for participants can be viewed here. The results are divided by gender in one of two races. The first race at 8:30am was for participants without dogs that were chip timed when crossing the start line. The second race at 9:15am was for those running/walking or racing with dogs and timed from a go signal start. Awards were given to the first, second and third place winners, both male and female, in both races, but only those that finished with a dog on leash were awarded prizes in the second race.

Join us for the 6th Annual Fast & Furriest 5K Run/Walk on April 28, 2018!

Bring your canine companions, friends and family to celebrate the special human-animal bond and enjoy a walk in the beautiful Midland City Forest!

Our popular event T-shirts and other goodies for participants will be guaranteed only to those who register by April 15. Each dog that is accompanied by a registered runner/walker will get a special Great Lakes Bay Animal Society bandana, too! Pre-registration is only $25 and all children 6 years of age or younger are FREE with a registered adult! Day-of-event registration is $35, with T-shirts and goodie bags depending on availability.

After the run/walk with dogs, we will draw bib numbers for fantastic raffle prizes! Snacks, beverages and freebees will also be available. (You must be present to receive awards/prizes.)

All proceeds from this special fundraiser will directly benefit Great Lakes Bay Animal Society’s goal of providing quality care for animals in transition to their forever homes.
