There are 5ks, and then there are furry 5ks! IE...running with dogs. And if you know us over here at KOMO and Seattle Refined, we believe literally everything is better when you add dogs.
Each year, the Furry 5K attracts thousands of two-legged runners accompanied by their four-legged companions. The race is followed by Pet-a-Palooza, with entertainment, festive music, awards and an interactive vendor area. Now in its 19th year, the Furry 5K is one of the few races in the Puget Sound area that encourages participants to run or walk with their dogs.
The best part? It's all for a good cause - raising money for the Seattle Animal Shelter Help the Animals Fund!
So what are you waiting for? Register, join a fundraising team or make a donation - then put on your running shoes and get your furry friends to the big event!
