In its 28th year, Hinsdale Humane Society is excited to present the second annual 5K Fun Run for all on Sunday, June 4, 2017. It is one of very few USATF Certified 5K Runs that allows strollers and dogs! USATF  IL-16010WR. The race will begin and end in beautiful Katherine Legge Memorial Park and is a relatively flat course in hilly Hinsdale.

Once runners and walkers finish the event, you can spend time at our family-friendly, pet friendly festival while enjoying food, music and events. 

We encourage all runners and walkers to wear their favorite hero gear and join HHS to "race to the rescue!" YOU can be a hero for animals!
