The Fast and Furriest 5 K-9 Race is one of Savannah’s pawsitively unique races! The racecourse will start and finish at Guy Minick Park/Youth Complex and wrap around the picturesque Lake Mayer. We will have a pup-arazzi on the course to capture all of the fun. The race time is 8:00 a.m., but this is not your typical race. Your four-legged friend will be timed, not the handler. All dog participants and their handlers will receive a finisher’s medal. Race packets include a bandana for your pup and a technical shirt for you! Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each division, but the fun doesn’t end there. We will have post-race refreshments and massages for the dog participants and their handlers.
Don’t have a dog? No worries! You can borrow a running buddy from one of our local rescues who will pair you with an appropriate running buddy. The Fast and Furriest 5 K-9 Race is fun for the entire family! Children 9 years of age or older can participate while accompanied by a parent or guardian and in control of their furry running buddy.
