Your safety is our top priority! We will be implementing the following safety protocols for Covid-19 so that everyone can have fun AND be safe.

  • All volunteers will wear masks. Gloves will be worn when handling any items handed to participants.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available at multiple locations.
  • Except while running, participants will be encouraged to wear masks anytime they are within 6 feet of others outside of their group. Groups are limited to 10.
  • Staggered start lines will eliminate bunching up at the race start and maintain spread on the course.
  • The 1 mile course will differ from the 5K to allow for more spread on the course.
  • Online registration is required. There will be no same day registration. Online registration closes on Monday, July 27.
  • Participants will have 2 different dates/times to pick-up their race packets, t-shirt and goody bags -- July 30 and August 1 -- in order to reduce the number of runners gathered at one time.
  • The first pick-up will be July 30th at BJ’s Restaurant & Bar from 5:00-7:00 PM. Volunteers staffing the table inside BJ’s will wear gloves and masks. Participants will be required to maintain 6 feet of separation while waiting in line for their turn
  • Final check-in and pick-up will be August 1, from 7:00 – 7:45 AM, just prior to the race start at 8:00 AM. We will implement drive-thru check-in and pickup to eliminate the need to stand in line at the event.  More details on how this works will be emailed to participants the week of the event.
  • Bottled water will be available at the finish line and on the 5K-course at the turn-around point. Participants will help themselves as desired.
  • The awards ceremony will immediately follow the conclusion of the 5K. Volunteers will wear masks and gloves as appropriate for handing out awards.

CARE Run 4 the Rescue is an annual Community Animal Rescue Effort fundraising event. Funds raised benefit animals from our community. We aid families and their pets with spay/neuter and other emergency care. This year our event is sponsored by BJ’s Restaurant & Bar. This is a chipped timed event provided by Race Day Event Services.


Well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome to participate with their humans. ALL proceeds will be used for C.A.R.E animal rescues.
