Get ready to get out and stretch those legs- all six of them! The Animal Orphanage of Old Town is putting on their 2022 5k Pet Run/Walk coming up Sunday, April 24th.
Things kick off at the Old Town Orono YMCA at 9 AM.
Usually, this event is timed but things will be different this year and will not include timing.
More Than Just A Race/Walk
What will make this race a little extra special is offering a bit of a spectacle for participants to be a part of. Participants can add a little extra to the run by throwing on costumes, for the humans or the pets.
This event is for the whole family- mom, dad, sister, brother, and 4-legged furry family members, too. Want to take part? Registration begins at 9 AM and the run/walk begins at 10:30 AM. Individual walkers and runners can participate for $20. Families (which are 2 to 5 registrants) can participate for $30. If you plan on bringing your pet, you must have your pet leashed.
There are prizes to be won by the participants of this event, human and furry friends alike. There are prizes for the top 3 finishers. A prize will be given to the first dog and the first cat to finish the race. Those with costumes will be a part of special awards and categories for best costumes: best pet costume, best participant customer, best family costume.
