Pet Walk & 5K Run

 Katherine Legge Memorial Park

5901 S. County Line Rd. Hinsdale, IL

In its 29th year, Hinsdale Humane Society is excited to present the second annual 5K Fun Run for all on Sunday, June 3, 2018. 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!

Race Timing
We use a disposable chip timing tag that runners receive at packet pick up on their race bibs. It is lightweight and remains attached to the race bib. 
Runners MUST wear their race bibs on the front of their clothing in order to be timed accurately. The bib cannot be covered, holding it in your hand or putting it in your pocket will NOT read the chip. Do not bend the chip.  Smart watches such as Garmin and smart phones can interfere with the timing chip frequency.  Please do not adjust your watch or phone as you cross the finish line and come through the chute.  Disputes for times on Smart watches and smart phones will not be taken into consideration. 

On-line registration closes June 2 and you must register by May 21 to guarantee a shirt.
