The Fast and the Furriest 5K
The 4th annual Fast and the Furriest 5K, benefiting Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, will be held at Brook Run Park, 4770 N Peachtree Rd in Dunwoody, GA on Sunday April 14, 2019. The course starts and finishes at the large pavilion and stays on the paved trails the entire time.
The Fast and the Furriest is for runners, walkers, and their dogs! We are excited to offer a 5K race AND a 5K walk for athletes, beginners and kids alike, while raising money to save lives!
As a USATF certified 5k course (GA17020WC), this race is an AJC Peachtree Road Race qualifier. The course will have two aid & water stations along the route for runners, walkers and their dogs. Due to the volume of runners and the limited space on the greenway- walkers, dogs and strollers will be asked to stay to the back at the start.
Included for each competitor is a custom race t-shirt (guaranteed if registered by April 1, 2019), a goody bag with treats for both humans and dogs, and post-race snacks. The Fast and the Furriest is perfect for both runners and walkers, who want to make a difference in the lives of homeless dogs and cats in Georgia. 2019 is Angels 10th Anniversary! Come celebrate with us at this dogcentric race. This year we will have bone shaped race bibs and every finisher will receive a bone shaped medal! We will have special awards for animals and humans alike.

The Fast and the Furriest will happen rain or shine. In the event of severe weather making it unsafe for participants, the event will be canceled. We’re sorry, but once you are registered, there are no refunds, transfers, or deferments. Due to the volume of runners and the limited space on the greenway- walkers, dogs and strollers will be asked to stay to the back at the start.
