The beautiful Wilson Farm Park is the backdrop for TLC’s fourth annual race event benefiting the dogs we rescue.
5K Race: Run or walk the 3.1-mile course through the park grounds. There will be water stations along the way for people and dogs. This timed activity will have a race clock at the finish for instant results. The race begins at 9 am.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 male, top 3 female, and top 3 dog finishers. Top 3 male and female finishers for each age bracket (14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+) will also be presented with awards.
1-Mile Fun Walk: This activity is designed for those who want a more leisurely and shorter distance through the lovely grounds. Great for families and lower energy dogs. The Fun Walk will start shortly after the 5K starts.
