Join in us February 12th for a doggone good time!  Kanine Social is excited to bring you the inaugural Chasing Tail 5K and Forever Vets Fun Run, supporting the Jacksonville Humane Society. Fang from the Jacksonville Icemen will be pacing along for the 1-mile fun run!

We will be scoring all winners based off ‘chip time’. All runners will receive an official ‘chip time’ based off the time they individually cross the start line to their finish.
