About This Activity

The Family Resource Center is hosting Puppy Love, a 5K fun run/walk on September 17th, 2017 at Johnny Appleseed Park in Elko. This unique event allows participants to run or walk with their dogs. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with the walkers beginning the 5K at 8:00 a.m. and the runners at 8:15 a.m. In addition to raising funds for FRC programming, it promotes physical exercise and socializing with runners, walkers, and dog lovers in a fun community event--all for a good cause!

The event is open to all participants, with or without a dog. The registration fee is $30 the day of the race or $20 for pre-registration. The first 175 people to register will receive a free WAG bag with an event shirt, items for their dog, one free raffle ticket, and sponsor marketing merchandise. Children under age 16 may run/walk for free with a registered adult; if children under age 16 would like a WAG bag with an event shirt, they must register.

Free recovery fruit/water is available to all race participants and volunteers. Following the 5K, a finish line celebration will take place with awards for dogs such as Best Costume and Friendliest Pup, music, a raffle, food, and beverages.

For questions, volunteer information, or sponsorship details, please call the Family Resource Center, 753-7352 or email us at admin@elkofrc.org.
