About This Activity

The RescueMe! 5K/1Mile Walk is an event for serious runners, weekend warriors, and families.  As all proceeds go to benefit Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary it is an animal friendly event!  You are encouraged to bring your dog (or cat if he/she can walk on a leash)! 

The 5K will be professionally timed by On Your Mark Timing.  Awards will be given to the top three male and top three female finishers.  The course root takes you along the scenic White House, TN greenway from the White House, High School trailhead, past the Veterans Memorial trailhead and back.

As the Rescue Me! 5K.1 Mile walk will take place approximately a month before Halloween, you are welcome to come in costume. You are also encouraged to dress your furry friend in a costume!  There will be post race fruit and drink.

The first 150 people to register are guaranteed a really cool sWAG bag.  The sWAG bag is a nylon drawstring backpack that looks like a puppy.  The bags will be filled with treats for you and your furry friend.

Please check for periodic updates!
