The Fast and Furriest 5K

25sepThe Fast and Furriest 5K

Event Details

Get out and run/walk with your dog! Join us for a pawsitively good time at The Savannah Kennel Club’s Fast and Furriest Race.

The racecourse will start and finish at Guy Minick Park/Youth Complex and go around the picturesque Lake Mayer.
This is not your typical race – your furry four-legged friend will be timed (not you) and all dog participants will receive a finisher’s medal and a bandana. Human finisher medals will be awarded to the top three in each division. All human participants will receive a technical race shirt.

Don’t have a dog? No worries. You can borrow a running buddy from one of our local rescues! Rescues will pair you with an appropriate running buddy.

This 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 running buddy.

Plan to stay for the after PAWTY! Relax after the run with a massage for you and your pup! We will have music, food trucks, thirst-quenching beer, vendor booths and activities!

All proceeds raised at WAGFEST will go to the purchase of the AKC REUNITE (AKC Pet Disaster Relief Unit) for Chatham County Animal Services. This mobile trailer is equipped with supplies for Chatham County Animal Services to become better prepared to care for pets when disaster strikes our community. These units provide co-location for the pets and service animals of people evaluating emergency situations. Each trailer contains many of the materials necessary to set up an emergency shelter for fifty or more pets and service animals.
