Event Description


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Based on information currently available from public health officials, there have been no scheduling changes to our event. We are monitoring the global and local impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus), following the advice of the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Our top priority is always the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators, and we will continue to monitor all safety aspects of our race including the COVID-19 (coronavius).


We encourage runners to listen to their bodies leading up to race weekend and to follow appropriate health guidelines to ensure they are well enough to participate. We will provide ongoing updates to our participants as necessary via our website, email, and social media.


Join AZ Paws and Claws Pet Fostering for the Racin' For Rescues 5K and 1 Mile event!  This pet friendly event will hit the paths at Freestone Park in Gilbert on April 5, 2020. 

Millions of unwanted dogs and cats are put down every year in US shelters. We want to help change that! By participating in Racin’ for Rescues, you will help us find homes for these pets so they may find that loving family they’ve been waiting for. All of our volunteers are unpaid and willingly put themselves and their hearts on the line to save animals. The funds we collect will help us feed more hungry dogs and cats, provide needed emergency medical care, create more neuter/spay programs for the public and get one step closer to saving them all.
