Support Pet Adoption & Care

Fit & Able's newest race to support our favorite friends! There was such good turnout for Mutts & Marshmallows that the SPCA of Wake County asked if we could add another dog-friendly event to support their continued mission of finding homes for pets. 

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!

Dogs are now welcome to participate with their owners in both the 5K and 10K races; there's no longer a separate event just for dogs. Now the whole family can run together!

PLEASE NOTE: only one dog per registered runner and you MUST register your dog for them to run with you. The race will be more fun with the whole family there and you'll be supporting a great organization in our community!
