5K & 1-Mile Doggy Dash
May 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Chesapeake Humane Society (CHS) will host its annual 5K & 1-Mile Doggy Dash on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 at Chesapeake City Park. Proceeds from the event support the programs of the Chesapeake Humane Society, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. From 9 am to Noon on Saturday, May 2nd, two and four-legged guests will enjoy live music from The Red Stapler Duo, craft beer from The Garage Brewery, and food from a local food truck as they gear up to run, walk, or stroll the 5K or 1-Mile course. This event is family-friendly and open to all ages.
The unique race allows participants to run with or without their dog. Registration includes a race t-shirt, finisher medal, and 1 beer ticket. Runners and walkers are encouraged to fundraise with their friends and family to make an even greater impact for the animals who depend on Chesapeake Humane Society’s programs. This year, we’ve joined forces with the Portsmouth Humane Society and the Virginia Beach SPCA to bring you the very first Triple Hound Challenge! Runners and walkers who participate in PHS’s Cause for Paws in April, CHS’s Doggy Dash in May, and VBSPCA’s Mutt Masquerade in October will receive a Triple Hound finisher medal and be recognized as a Special Champion for Animals.
The 5K & 1-Mile Doggy Dash brings animal lovers together each year to enjoy the outdoors while supporting the Chesapeake Humane Society. The event is held in partnership with the City of Chesapeake Parks, Recreation and Tourism. To learn more or to register for the 5K or 1-Mile race, visit www.chesapeakehumane.org/5K.
