Register for the 2020 Chase Your Tail 5k

On Sunday, October 4 One of a Kind Pet Rescue will be putting on Chase Your Tail with a 5k Run/Walk & 1 Mile Walk "Doggie Dash" (Untimed Event).  You are permitted to bring your dog on a leash for all events!  Those that can't participate can signup for the virtual race option.

The race is on the roads and Towpath with some of the course being on the waterfront on the Towpath.  This is a very pretty and newer section of the Towpath, called The Divide, and takes you over the floating Towpath Trail across the middle of Summit Lake.  
All event participants will receive a race t-shirt and finisher's medal. There is a virtual race option as well - participants will receive a race t-shirt and medal for participating.

This event benefits One of A Kind Pet Rescue, a no-kill, no time-limit shelter whose mission is to save the lives of animals in imminent danger of euthanasia and enrich the lives of people through rescue, spaying/neutering, adoption, and advocacy on behalf of homeless pets.  Donations can also be given by going to this link fundraiser page, donations can also be made through the registration process.
