A community of athletes creating a better, loving and more sustainable world through outdoor exercise, animal kindness and environmental awareness
Welcome to our 3rd Annual and 1st Virtual Animal Run 5k, 10k, 1/2 marathon and canicross (canine cross-country).
Our Mission: Animal Run's eco-friendly vegan foot races raise funds for various local animal welfare organizations, helping them save the lives of, find homes for, heal and comfort animal residents in need. Animal Run encourages athletes to support vegan businesses which promote human health and a thriving world.
Enjoy a virtual fundraising event for the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) where "all our clients are innocent." ALDF's mission is to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system by filing high-impact lawsuits to protect animals from harm and providing free legal assistance and training to prosecutors to assure that animal abusers are held accountable for their crimes. A virtual event means you will run/walk your distance wherever it is most fun for you.
Finisher prizes are an Animal Run face mask. Doggies will receive a doggie neckerchief. All finishers will receive a beautiful eco-handmade medal. 1/2 marathoners will receive an extra digital token of appreciation.
Please note: To receive your prizes, you must select domestic or international shipping fees.
You have a month to finish your distance all at once. We will begin on Sunday, August 30 and end on Wednesday, September 30. Please post pictures on social media with #animalrun.
Thank you for creating positive impact with the Animal Run community!
