Fast and Furriest Race PostPoned until 2021

New Date: September 25, 2021

Thank you for your interest in the Savannah Kennel Club’s Fast and Furriest Race. Due to public safety concerns our board has made the decision to postpone the Fast and Furriest Race until September 25, 2021.

Over the past year, the Savannah Kennel Club has made significant strides in our community outreach efforts. A large part of these efforts has been in reinforcing the Kennel Club's position as a trusted organization promoting both human and canine wellness. In order to maintain this public trust, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Fast and Furriest Race. We simply did not feel current conditions would allow us to hold the event and allow for an adequate level of safety for the general public and the Kennel Club and Sponsor volunteers in attendance.  

Our goal is to be back bigger and better in 2021 with more fun and activities for you and your pup.

We will continue to look for ways to virtually keep the community engaged and offer safe distancing activities for you and your pup! Stay in touch with us on FB and our website http://SavannahKennelClub.org. 

Thank you for all that you are doing to stay safe. 

Sincerely,

Description

The 2021 Fast and the Furriest 8K-9, 4K-9, Trail Race and 1 Mile Fun Walk

  • Saturday, September 25, 2021
  • Race Time: 4:30pm
  • Skidaway Island State Park

Get out and run/walk with your dog! Join us for a pawsitively good time at The Savannah Kennel Club’s Fast and Furriest Trail Race at Skidaway Island State Park. Sponsored by Chatham Parkway Subaru. Choose your distance: 8K, 4K, or 1 Mile.

This is not your typical race - your furry four-legged friend will be timed (not you) and all dog participants will receive a finisher’s medal and a bandana. Human finisher medals will be awarded to the top three in each division. All human participants will receive a technical race shirt.
Don’t have a dog, no worries. You can borrow a running buddy from one of our local rescues!


This race is fun for the entire family! Children 12 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 trail run with a massage for you and your pup! We will have live music, food trucks, thirst quenching beer, vendor booths and activities!
 
A veterinarian will be on site.
