Get out and run/walk with your dog! Join us for a pawsitively good time at The Savannah Kennel Club’s Fast and Furriest Race.
The 5K-9 racecourse will go through the picturesque Tom Triplett Park The one mile fun walk will be a point to point walk. We will have a pup-arazzi on the course to capture all of the fun. The race time is 8:00 a.m. This is not your typical race - your four-legged friend will be timed, not the handler. All 5K-9 dog participants and their handlers will receive a finisher’s medal. Race packets include a bandana for your pup and a technical shirt for you! Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each division, but the fun doesn’t end there. We will have post-race refreshments and massages for the dog participants and their handlers.
Don’t have a dog? No worries. You can borrow a running buddy from one of our local rescues! Rescues will pair you with an appropriate running buddy.
This race is fun for the entire family! Children 9 years of age or older can participate while accompanied by a parent or guardian and in control of their running buddy.
Plan to stay for the after PAWTY! Relax after the run with a massage for you and your pup! We will have music, food trucks, thirst-quenching beer, vendor booths, canine sports and demos, and activities!
