About This Activity

Winding its way through the beautiful scenic Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, this 5K walk/run event will take participants on a beautiful route alongside the ocean, intracoastal waterways and indigenous palms and foliage of this beachside paradise. This is a fast route for serious racers and a stunning run or walk for less competitive participants.

The Puppy Love 5K Run/Walk is hosted to benefit Paws 4 Warriors, a non-profit organization that provides puppies to veterans in need. Each puppy is paired with his or her veteran as early as possible past the age of 7 weeks and training of both dog and human is done on site on beautiful residential farm property in North Carolina.

This event is also a stunning celebration of the spirit of giving as we open it up to over 50 non profits who are able to enter teams of fundraising participants, the charity with the most participants winning $1500 for their organization.

Temperatures are mild, there is a beautiful breeze, a very popular t-shirt, finishers medal and vendors and party at the finish line.

Event details and schedule

Race-Day Registration from 6:00am - 7:00am

Race Begins 7:30am

Fort Lauderdale can be warm! Remember to wear your sunscreen! It's important to hydrate well before the race and to take advantage of the many water stations along the route. Wear light fabrics that wick moisture from your body. This is a flat course, alongside the ocean so it has the benefit of a light ocean breeze.

Please be sure to arrive in time for the start. There is some parking onsite at the Park, and there will also be maps provided for different parking locations within a mile radius. If you are staying at a hotel on the beach strip then shuttle transportation may be available.
