    Fast & Furriest 5k run/walk is going VIRTUAL October 9,10 & 11, 2020

    Great Lakes Bay Animal Society’s 8th Annual

    Fast & Furriest VIRTUAL 5K Run/Walk

    October 9, 10th and 11th 2020 at Midland City Forest, Midland

    We are going VIRTUAL!  Same great race only now you have a choice of three days to run/walk the trail at Midland City Forest or you can choose your favorite 5k course.   The current restrictions limiting group gatherings to 100 or less has warranted a change in the race to keep participants on the course safe.  We want to have the best and safest race possible for all of our participants and we know how much everyone loves to run/walk the trails. 

    We are excited to announce that we will have the course set up on the trails in Midland City Forest, just like we have for the past 8 years.  The great news is the course will be set up for THREE DAYS.    You can run/walk your 5k at any time, any of the three days, or, you can choose your favorite course close to home.  Your 5k run/walk just has to be completed in the three day time period.  You can still run with friends just not 100 at a time.  Once you run your virtual race you will submit your time on our website glbas.org and will will compile the times and declare the winners in each division male/female 5k run/walk without dogs and 5k run/walk with dogs.  We have the medals ready to go!

    Packet pick up will be at Midland City Forest  --   Friday October 9th 5:00pm - 7:00pm, Saturday October 10, 8:00 am -12:00 pm and Sunday 8:00 am -12:00 pm  LATE REGISTRATION WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THESE TIMES.

    Run Fur Fun! This event is a 5k Trail Run/Walk.

    Runners and walkers are encouraged to bring their canine companions and celebrate the special human-animal bond!  Runners and walkers without dogs are also encouraged to come participate in the fun! Children 6 and under can run/walk for FREE!

    Long sleeve event t-shirts, a new design doggie bandana and other goodies for the runners/walkers will be guaranteed to those who register by September 25, 2020.  We will also have our orange bandanas available for purchase with your entry. 

    All proceeds from this special fundraiser will directly benefit Great Lakes Bay Animal Society’s goal of providing quality care for animals in transition to their forever homes.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
