Get Ready, Get Set...and Run with the Dogs!
The Fast & The Furriest 5K Run - 1 Mile Fun Walk 2020 has gone virtual!
It's the 10th Anniversary!!!
The Fast and The Furriest, Virtual Race, Holiday Edition!!
It's the 10th Anniversary!!! Celebrate the animals on your own time, in your own way!!!
The Fast and Furriest has been utmost on our minds! Due to Covid-19, Lee County and the City of Fort Myers had closed event permitting. Until November 2020, with no event permits issued, this led to a stall in planning. Because it is our 10th Anniversary year and we want our sponsors and participants to have their benefits in the year 2020, we have decided to move forward with a Virtual Event!!
Date: The event will be open from December 6th-December 26th
Location: You can complete the run/walk at your leisure during that time, at the location of your choice.
How: You can participate in a group or individually
The Fun Part: Submit your photos to us completing the event, maybe in holiday gear, with antlers on dogs, etc... and we will share them on our social media sites which combined have over 30,000 followers. Use the hashtag #FastandFurriest2020!
The Prize: After you have completed the event and entered your info-you will have the opportunity to pick up your event t-shirt and finisher medal (to the first 400 people). Pick up will be at the Gulf Coast Humane Society (unless you are out of state, then we will mail them) on a date to be determined after the event is over.
