It's the furriest race in town!  5K features chip timing on a course accurately measured by Fleet Feet Sports.  1 Mile Walk offers a nice stroll in the park.  This event also includes activities for kids!  Registrants receive a free t-shirt and goody bag - while supplies last.  Please register by April 5th to be sure to receive your requested shirt size.  Well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome in both the 5K and the 1 Mile.


Registration fee is $30.00 through Wednesday, April 22 at 5pm, at which time online registration closes and the registration fee increases to $35.00 (through day of event).  No charge for kids age 5 or under (unless t-shirt is requested). 


Proceeds from the APA’s Fast and the Furriest run/walk will benefit the Animal Protective Association of Missouri.  By registering for this event, you will help the APA provide shelter and care for over 3,000 animals each year, as well as provide pet adoption and humane education services to the community. 


Want to do more to help the animals at the APA?  You can create your own online fundraising campaign and invite your friends and family to donate to the APA.  Top fundraiser wins a bike!
