About This Activity

This is the inaugural year for The Fast and the Furriest 5K. This event is for runners, walkers, and their dogs! We are excited to offer a 5K race and Fun Run for athletes, beginners and kids alike, while raising money to save lives!

The Fast and the Furriest 5K, benefiting Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, will be held at the Large Pavilion and will finish at the track at Fowler Park, 4110 Carolene Way, Cumming, GA 30040. The race course is on the Big Creek Greenway, a 12 foot wide concrete and boardwalk path through the woods along Big Creek. 

As a USATF certified 5k course (#GA13089WC), this race is a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier.  The course is flat and fast – a great opportunity to PR!

The course will have one aid & water station along the route for runners, walkers and their dogs.

The Fast and the Furriest will happen rain or shine. Due to the volume of runners and the limited space on the greenway- walkers, dogs and strollers will be asked to stay to the back at the start. 

Included for each competitor is a custom race t-shirt (guaranteed if registered by May 27, 2016), a goody bag with treats for both owners and dogs, and post-race snacks.  The Fast and the Furriest 5K is perfect for both runners and walkers, who want to make a difference in the lives of homeless dogs and cats in North Georgia.
