The third Fast and Furriest 5K is taking place on Sunday, May 20, 2018, at 10:00am, at DCR Baxter Park at Assembly Row in Somerville. The event includes a timed 5K run, walk, wag for humans and their canine companions, and a shorter “Ducky Dash” for kids. The family-friendly, community event is followed by activities, interactive sponsor booths, food, contests, and entertainment for the entire family. Sure to sell out- we anticipate over 2,000 humans and canines to come together and raise over $250,000 for animals in need!

And for those of you who raise $250 or more, there are some cool prizes for you!
