Fast and the Furriest 5K

October 22, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Fast and the Furriest 5K, benefiting Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, will be held at Newtown Park in Johns Creek, GA.
All pre- and post-race activities will take place at the pavilion.

The Fast and the Furriest is for runners, walkers, and their dogs! We are excited to offer a 5K race AND a 5K walk for athletes, beginners and kids alike, while raising money to save lives!
The relatively flat course will have two aid & water stations along the route for runners, walkers and their dogs(children and strollers are welcome). This USATF certified course is a Peachtree Road Race qualifier.

Included for each competitor is a custom race t-shirt and post-race snacks. The Fast and the Furriest is perfect for both runners and walkers, who want to make a difference in the lives of homeless dogs and cats in Georgia. Come celebrate with us at this dog-centric race.

The Fast and the Furriest will happen rain or shine. In the event of severe weather making it unsafe for participants, the event will be canceled. We’re sorry, but once you are registered, there are no refunds, transfers, or deferments if cancelled due to weather.
