Description

Delaware SPCA and Delaware Humane Association (DHA) recently announced their intention to merge. The Fast & the Furriest 5K will be our first event together!

Join them to celebrate this exciting merger and help raise funds to support their lifesaving services. They welcome all involvement, whether you choose to participate by running or walking, supporting us with a corporate sponsorship or individual donation, or setting up a vendor table at the event!

Rockford Park provides a beautiful setting for our 5k. Starting and finishing near the Rockford Tower, the course takes runners around one loop of the park and then out Tower Drive to Pennsylvania Avenue, with a turnaround at A.I. du Pont Middle School. Runners then circle back to Rockford Park and complete one more loop around the park.

Amenities include tee shirts to all pre-registered participants, post-race refreshments, and DJ music and emcee provided by WJBR.

Awards will be presented to first, second and third place, male and female finishers in four age groups, as well as top fundraising team and largest team.

Registration opens at 8:00 and race begins at 9:00 am.

Dogs are not permitted to run the course, due to insurance liability, but may be walked on a leash.

Social distancing and safety protocols will be in place and enforced.

Bibs are non-transferrable.

NOVA Timing Systems will chip time using the MYLAPS BibTag Timing System.
