Spring is in the air, and that means it’s time to dust off those running shoes and start stretching- the Fast and the Furriest 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk is on its way!
What: 6th Annual Fast and the Furriest 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk
Where: Sons of Rest Pavilion at Tower Grove Park (4256 Magnolia Ave, St Louis, Missouri 63110)
When: Sunday, April 27 at 9:00 a.m.
Mark your calendars now for the furriest race in town! This unique event is one of only a handful of races in the whole country that allows participants to run or walk with their four-legged friend. Now in its 6th year at Tower Grove Park, participation in this popular, festive run grows every year- nearly 500 people came out for it last year!
The 5K features RFID chip timing on a course accurately measured by Fleet Feet Sports, and the 1 Mile Walk offers a nice scenic stroll through the park, with or without your pooch. The day also features activities for kids, vendor booths, food trucks and prize giveaways.
Register now for a guaranteed event t-shirt. Registration costs $30 through April 25, and all proceeds benefit the pets and programs of the APA.
