Event Description

The 6th Annual Fast & Furriest 5K race and 1M walk to benefit Operation Paws for Homes - an all-breed 501c3 dog rescue - is the rescue's 2nd biggest annual fundraiser focused on raising funds toward the medical needs of our dogs. 

Each year, Operation Paws for Homes incurs over $150,000 in medical costs.  This event aims to replenish a piece of those funds.  We encourage families, runners, walkers, supporters and anyone interested in helping this organization while enjoying a fun event.  Along with a silent auction and raffles, vendors will be greeting you as they, too, support OPH.  As always, we welcome your leashed dogs to run or walk the course, too! 

This year's event is both live and virtual!  The live race will be held on Sunday, April 25.  The virtual race can be run from Saturday, April 24, until Tuesday, April 27. 

Tell all your friends and family - wherever they are located - they, too, can participate in this event and support the many dogs that need us every single day.  Let's make it coast to coast this year!  Hybrid events have become more common since COVID-19 has taken over our lives.  We are excited to give it a try in 2021 and we hope you are just as excited to join us ! 

More information will be upcoming - but register now - while special pricing is in effect! 

Register today.  Special pricing is in effect until January 15!

Special Note:  We will monitor the COVID-19 situation in the weeks leading up to the race and will follow all CDC, state and local guidelines and/or restrictions in effect on race day.  In the event the live event must be rescheduled due to COVID-19, live event participants' registration fees will be refunded 100% or applied to the rescheduled event at your request.  (We cannot refund the $2.50 RunSignUp sign up fee.)
