Support Pet Adoption & Care

Fit & Able's newest race to support our favorite friends!

Fit & Able loves family fitness and whose four-legged furry friend isn't part of the family? Dog owners are welcome to run with their pups in the Doggie Dash! For only $10 per pup it will be happy trails for both runners and their dogs. AND, the full $10 dog fee goes to support the Wake County SPCA!

PLEASE NOTE: only one dog per registered runner and you MUST register your dog for them to run with you. RRCA Rules: Dogs are not allowed in the 5K, 8K, or 1 Mile Races where children 12 & under are participating; children 12 & under are not allowed to participate in the Doggie Dash 5K. The race will be more fun with the whole family there and you'll be supporting a great organization in our community!
