What does it mean to run or walk a VIRTUAL race?
We wanted to make it easy to participate in the Fast & Furriest 5K for out-of-town runners and walkers or anyone taking extra COVID-19 precautions. By registering as a virtual runner, you can run the 5k anytime from March 1 - 26. You can do so in your own neighborhood or at one of our pre-selected 5K courses around Memphis. You can find these courses by visiting our Virtual race tab. Once you run your 5K, return to your registration page and enter your race time. This will ensure that you are included in the results posted after the race. And of course, all participants are encouraged to customize their fundraising page and raise money to help us care for injured animals in our community.
Fundraise to become a Humane Hero!
When you register, you will automatically have a fundraising profile. Make sure to customize this page, and share with your friends to gather donations. Every person that raises $100 or more will receive on of our Humane Hero tshirts!
Please note: In the event of cancellation due to extenuating circumstances, all registration fees will be viewed as donations and are non-refundable.
