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.
This year we're also offering a non-competitive one-mile fun walk so that people and dogs of all ability levels can participate!
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 2015 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.
Please clean up after your furry friend as necessary.
Join us for a fun post-race celebration that the entire family can enjoy with food from Colletta's, Dunkin Donuts, and Humdingers, 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 5K and one-miler participants.
