Can You Keep Up With The Pack?

Embark on an exhilarating adventure at Conestee Park as you and your furry friend race the trails together at our 8th Annual Tails & Trails 5K Walk/Run. Whether you're sprinting side by side with your canine companion, strolling in support of a noble cause, or participating in the race with family and friends without a pet, this event promises loads of fun for everyone. Tails & Trails isn't just about the thrill of the run; it's an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the lives of our community animals. All proceeds play a pivotal role in empowering Animal Care to extend assistance to homeless animals, while also bolstering programs aimed at reducing the number of animals entering the shelter. These initiatives include affordable and targeted spay/neuter programs, as well as a wide range of programs designed to provide resources that enable animals to stay within the loving confines of their homes.

Following the race, indulge in the festivities at our vibrant vendor village, let your pup revel in the puppy pools, and stay for the dog-gone awesome award ceremony. As a token of appreciation, participants over the age of 6 will receive a stylish t-shirt and a race bag with delightful goodies. Join us today for a day of fun, fitness, and compassion.

*t-shirt sizing and availability is not guaranteed if registered after April 24th!
