Join Louisa Humane Society June 3rd, 2023 at the award-winning Fifty-Third Winery & Vineyard for the Happy Tail 5k, Dog Jog, and Kids’ Miler. This is a closed course, fun event for the whole family and as always, 100% of the proceeds go directly to the homeless animals in our care. This year we are adding a Home Stretch Only Option for the folks who want to take a short stroll but still get the wine and support us! Starting with a one-mile kids run for 13 years and under and followed by a 5k run/walk for others over the beautiful vineyards, all are welcome to register for our timed event! We also have a one-mile Dog Jog for the last wave where you and your pooch can walk or run together. For our long-distance supporters, consider the Virtual 5k where you can run or walk your 3.1 miles and receive your grab bag and shirt in the mail! Registrants who sign up before 7 a.m. May 15 are guaranteed a t-shirt and all participants 21 and over get a delicious glass of wine at the finish. Virtual runners will get a ticket redeemable for a glass of wine when they visit the winery. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finishers in each race. Get pumped up with some tunes and snacks and water will be waiting at the finish. Stick around for some great raffle prizes and the food truck. Whether you feel more like a greyhound or a basset hound or simply want to show up for the wine, we just want you to have a great time for a great cause!
