Racing for Rescues 5K

May 20, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

2nd annual Racing for Rescues 5k and Fun Run. This is a race where pet owners are encouraged to run with their pets. We only ask that the pets be on a leash and well behaved. In addition to helping a local rescue you can help your school earn money. The school that has the most registered participants will receive 10% of all the proceeds from registration. A participant is someone who either registers for the event or gives a donation of at least $10. When you register as a participant for this event you will enter your school’s name. We will recognize that school with the most during the awards program.

This years race will benefit Piedmont Animal Rescue. This rescue has over 25 years of experience collectively rescuing animals. In the last 8 years this team is credited with rescuing over 4,200 animals and finding them their forever homes. They need your help to meet the needs of all animals that are forgotten or neglected. With your support of this event they can save more animals and find them forever homes.

This course will be a down and back course. It is very flat and will be a great opportunity for a personnel record. The race will start and end at Nesbit Park in Mooresville. There is ample parking for runners and guest alike.

The cost of the 5k (3.1 miles) will be $25 until May 6, 2017. After that date the price will increase to $30. To insure that you get a T-shirt you must register by May 6, 2017. For the 5k we will have awards for top 3 males, top 3 females, top 3 masters, and male and female age groups. In addition every runner will be eligible for prizes in the blind drawing.

The cost of the Fun Run (1 mile) will be $15 for the entire event. If you choose the Fun Run you will not be eligible for a shirt and awards will not be given to Fun Run Participants. Participants in the Fun Run will be eligible for prizes in the blind drawings.

Online registration will close at 6:00 PM on May 18, 2017. We will have same day registration starting at 7:30 at the event. The cost will be $30 5k and $15 Fun Run.
