The Annual Run For The Paws 5k is an annual event that encourages healthy activity within our community while raising financial support for the Clark County Animal Shelter. Through revenue generated from entry ticket sales for over 100 runners annually and generous sponsors throughout the Clark County Community, the Run For The Paws 5k has helped the Clark County Animal Shelter purchase much-needed supplies including food, shelving, cleaning materials, and more.
The 2021 Run for the Paws Event, currently scheduled for May 22nd, will be an in-person 5K race at Lykins Park. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to practice social distancing at this event and also offer a virtual option.
What is the virtual option?
