This 5k Run & Walk With The Dogs is Beacon's only nonprofit sporting event dedicated to saving animals' lives. On this day, animal lovers and athletes of all ages lace up and hit the pavement in support of ARF where 100% of the profits goes to Animal Rescue Foundation, a nonprofit, no kill 501 (c)3 animal rescue and shelter in Beacon, NY.
This dog friendly, fun and non-competitive event is packed with tons of activities, including trophies, sponsors information, step and repeat photo section, music, entertainment, face painting, raffles, giveaways and more.
All participating dogs must be well-behaved and non-aggressive with people and other dogs. All dogs must be leashed and current on all vaccines. Strollers are welcomed as well.
