It’s almost time to lace up for some fast-paced fun for the APA’s Fast & the Furriest 5K run or 1 mile walk!
We’re upping the ante and taking this race to the casino, Hollywood Casino. The course is professionally timed and measured for you to enjoy with or without Fido.
Take a gamble on the 1 mile Pooch Poker Walk, which offers a more leisurely pace with the added fun of creating your best possible poker hand along the way. Both the 5K and 1M come complete with a race t-shirt and the best goody bag in town, so join in the action and get ready to break a sweat with your dog.
Children age 5 and under can participate in the 5K and the 1M for free, unless a t-shirt is requested. You do not need to register children 5 and under.
Register by April 5th to guarantee your T-shirt size.
Awards will be given to the first, second and third place male and female finishers in the following age divisions: under 20, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s & 70+.
Plus, awards will be presented to the overall first place male and female runners and first place male and female dogs in the 5K.
