About This Activity

This is a great early season race, on a beautiful flat and fast course.  The course features the Kent Island Cross Island trail, and has become a popular event for animal lovers.  Animal Resource Foundation, Inc, helps homeless animals find their forever homes, and they need your help.  Growing every year, this race features dozens of door prizes, and we have great new features for participants this year, including free beer for runners after the race, and food for purchase (cash only) from The BBQ Joint!  Sign up today!

In addition, this year we have added a fundraising option for our participants.  Please consider raising extra money for our animals in need.  You will have the option of setting up a fundraising site when you register for the race.  Thank you in advance!

The Get Pumped for Pets Race is the first race in the Kent Island Challenge Series.  To encourage participation and pride in local running events and running in general, The Kent Island Running Group (KIRG) is excited to announce the KENT ISLAND CHALLENGE SERIES for 2014.  This series will consist of 8 local races.
