Fur Fun Run

Fur Fun Run Update: April 24th, 2020

2019 Fur Fun Run Finisher Medal and Shirt

The Unleashed Paws’ Fur Fun Run, normally scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, is currently on hold in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This paw-triotic run and walk will still happen (eventually) and is a great way for family, friends, and the community to get their tails wagging along with their pups. Even through these 'ruff' times, we can still get you to the start line, where our goal is to bring the fun to you by offering two options -- participation in one of our smaller live events or participate in a virtual walk or run. More detailed descriptions are listed below.

You can choose to run or walk from wherever you are and on any date.Simply pick a date between now and November 30th. It's a convenient option for everyone to enjoy. Just leash up your dog, run or walk, and then post your photos on the Fur Fun Run Facebook event page. If you choose this option, you can still attend one of the live events, if you’d like. Or, you can choose to skip a live event and just pick up your shirt, bib and medal at any live event with our streamlined to-go pick up. The pickup dates and location(s) to be announced soon. 

In addition, for our virtual event participants, we will announce and host giveaways monthly, where winners will be selected on the last day of each month.
