Join us for our 2nd annual 5k run/walk. Paws in the Park is one of Cascades Humane Society’s largest fundraisers of the year! Paws in the Park 2020 is on Saturday, September 19, 2020 and features a beautiful 5k run/walk through the charming Sparks Foundation Park (aka Cascades Falls Park). Leashed dogs are welcome to attend and participate in the event.

The race will feature an open start line from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. This will allow for social distancing and safe racing!

How does the open/flexible start line work? Start the race any time between 9:00 and 10:00 am. There will be no crowded mass start. Keep an eye on the start line and begin your race when it is free of other participants. No more than 5 people will start at a time. The start line will be wide, and the space is very open to allow for proper social distancing. You do not have to feel rushed to get to the starting line. Start your race when you are ready. Timing does not start until you cross the timing mats.

NEW this year! Paws in the Park Virtual 5k. Can’t make the race, but want to support CHS and our furry friends? This virtual race you can complete on your own time and at your favorite place. Run, jog, walk, or roll whenever it is convenient to you. Your t-shirt, bib, and medal will be mailed out on June 8th to the address you provide at sign up. Remember to use Strava, RunKeeper, MapMyRun or your preferred APP to keep track of your route and mileage.
