5K Run/Walk

Info: Our 4th 5K Run/Walk for the Dog Park is on April 22, 2017 beginning at 9am at the Darke County Fairgrounds. This race encourages you to bring your dog to participate with you. If you don’t have a dog you can still enter. Medals will be awarded to those racing with dogs as well as those racing without.

We’ll soon provide a registration form, you can download from this page. Free online registration will be possible at www.gtraces.com.

As part of the Darke County Wellness Challenge, formerly known as Wayne Healthcare Challenge, the Darke County Friends of the Shelter had their first 5K run/walk on April 5, 2014 to benefit Scentral Park dog park. It was a HUGE success for everyone and a great event!

There were a large number of participants for this first of a kind event and many runners came with their canine friends.

Sponsors and donors as well as a lot of volunteers helped make our first 5K a big success.

This 5K run/walk will be held annually. Dates and times will be announced on our facebook page as well as in the local media.

The Darke County Friends of the Shelter say a BIG Thank You to all our supporters!
