Running Away: A 5K for Animals

On April 22, join Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS) for its 7th Annual Run for Animals 5K. Competitive and non-competitive runners—with or without dogs—are welcome to take part in this certified 5K race. Registration is from 9 to 10am for pre-registered runners and walk-ins. The start times are 10:30am for adults running without dogs and 10:40am for adults running with dogs. The race starts at the War Memorial on Memorial Drive. The course loops through downtown Danbury, traveling along Memorial Drive, South Street and Coalpit Hill Road.

The registration fees are $30 for an adult runner without a dog, $35 for an adult runner with a dog, and $15 for kids age 8-17. The cost per dog is $5. The event’s top sponsor is Pet Stop, a pet fence system company.

Please note that your dog wants to please you and cannot tell you when he is tired. For the safety of your dog, ensure you only run with your dog if s/he is accustomed to and can complete a 5K run at race speeds.
