Join us on Facebook while we go live and log your time with Its Race Time. All registered participants will receive an email with the link. Hundreds of human participants and their canine companions have taken part in this race, providing our community with a healthy and fun event that gets bigger and better every year. The scenic, flat course ensures that first time walkers and runners can comfortably participate alongside more serious runners. Along with the race, the day will feature many area vendors, bobbing for tennis balls, concessions, a 50/50 raffle, DJ Nick music and more. Back again this year are “Flash Magnets”, which are photo magnets produced on-site and free of charge for participants to take home as a keepsake. If you’re looking for a day filled with excitement, fun, fellowship and lots of tail wagging, plan to take part in this year’s Furry Friends 5K on August 22. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Jefferson County, which has proudly served our community since 1922.
