Description

Start Times:

The one-mile fun run will start at 8:30 a.m. and the 5K will start at 9:15 a.m. in front of the library on Main Street. We encourage everyone to bring your dogs for this run to benefit rescue pets. If you plan on running with your dog, you are responsible for ensuring they are fit enough to run and have trained appropriately to run alongside you. Our 5K is one of the final Peachtree Qualifiers before the Peachtree Road Race, and our race is chip-timed by Race Works.

Race Goodies:

All competitors who register early will receive an official Run for the Rescues T-Shirt and a runner's bag. We will be able to provide T-Shirts to late registrations (after March 12th) and day of registrations while supplies last.

There will be trophies and prizes awarded to the top finishers for both men and women overall/masters and for specific age groups. Awards will be given to the top 3 dogs crossing the finish line in the 5K.
