In the winter, it can be tough to get out and get enough exercise. That isn’t just true for people. It can be hard for our pets to get enough time outdoors, too. Luckily, there’s a great chance for you two to get out together. Head over to Shreveport for the Run Like An Animal 5K.
This race is sure to be a great time. You can choose between the 5K race and the 1-mile dog run. Either way, you’ll have a blast and get some great exercise.
The event takes place at Stoner Skateboard Park at 857 E. Stoner Avenue, Shreveport. Be there on January 26, 2019, to take part in one of these races. The 1-mile dog run starts at 7:45, and the 5K starts at 8:15.
One of the coolest parts of the Run Like An Animal 5K is the kind of prize the winners get. There will be a lot of awards given. For the 5K, there will be overall male and female winners, plus first and second place male and female in the following age groups:
- 19 and under
In the one-mile dog run, the fastest human/dog duo and the runner up duo will both receive awards.
So what’s the cool prize? Some award winners will receive a custom canine bobblehead trophy in addition to gift certificates and other prizes. That’s sure to help you remember this race.
This year there will be medals for any kids who run either race, too. Plus you can win a special prize for best pet/owner look-alike and best costume. So even if you or your dog aren’t the fastest runners, you can still be winners.
All the proceeds from this race go to benefit the University Veterinary Hospital Foundation and the Pet Education Project. You’ll have even more fun running knowing your registration funds are going to a good cause.
