Event Description

The most successful endurance hunter (runner) in the world needs your help! Hosted by Global Conservation Force, this race honors and supports one of Africa's most endangered species, the Painted dog or "African Wild dog". Able to run 44mph at a sprint and hold 35mph for 3 miles, the Painted dog boasts a hunting success rate of 80-85%. Proceeds from the race go to advanced ranger training programs, group snare removal programs in areas that rangers don’t patrol, free vaccine clinics for local communities who have cats and dogs where they overlap with African Painted Dogs, and community conservation projects with education outreach to help locals understand how unique these rare canines are, and how to successfully coexist with the native wildlife. Virtual 5k/10k options available.

ENTRY INCLUDES: Running tech T-shirt, finisher medal, and sponsored goodie bags. All items will be picked up at the event.
