The Fast & The Furriest 5K Run/WalkOctober 21, 2017, 9:00 am-12:00 pm
The Fast & The Furriest is one of the only dog-friendly races in Memphis. Leashed, friendly dogs are not only welcome, we even award the fastest (and the furriest of course)! This event features a flat course in the area around the Humane Society friendly for running, walking, and strollers. The 2017 5K 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.The Fast and the Furriest 5K Run/Walk presented by Hollywood Feed is a DOG-FRIENDLY 3.1 mile run/walk event benefiting the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County. We also have a non-competitive one-mile fun walk so that people and dogs of all ability levels can participate! Not a runner? Sign up as a Ghost Runner, pay the entry fee, support our mission, and still get an awesome shirt – all from the comfort of your couch!
