Four Years, Fresh Ideas!
2019 marks FOUR years of People & Paws 5k, and this year, we’re making some changes! We’re bringing you a bigger, better race on a new course, and we’re combining it with Newtown Vet Hospital’s 17th Annual Pet Fair to make it a fun day for the whole family!
Our new 5k course will take runners from Newtown Vet Hospital, past the NAC, down Fountain Farm Rd and back again. It’s a flat, runner-friendly course built for fast finishes and new PRs!
For those who aren’t runners but still want to get involved, join our outdoor yoga class and get your limbs moving with a gentler workout – all levels of yogis welcome.
Our race is dog-friendly! Dogs should be leashed on non-retractable leashes, under control at all times, and be friendly with other dogs as well as people.
As the race ends, Newtown Vet’s Pet Fair begins! Hang around for family fun, games, vendors, a DJ, pet parade, demos from participating sponsors, and the chance to win a lot of really great prizes. Our 17th annual Pet Fair runs from 10am-2pm.
As always, proceeds from People & Paws will benefit RSDSA, an organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families suffering from the pain of RSD/CRPS, as well as funding awareness and research for a cure. Visit www.rsds.org for more info.
Awards: First male/female overall finishers, first male/female age group finishers, first canine finisher.
