Run, walk or jog in the 20th Annual Dog Jog and 5K Run presented by Holiday Barn Pet Resorts and  benefiting the Richmond SPCA!

We are excited for the return of our in-person Dog Jog and 5K Run, while still offering a virtual “run anywhere” option for those who want to join in on the fun from your favorite trail, neighborhood or wherever you like. In response to COVID-19 and to protect our loyal supporters and the Greater Richmond community, the Richmond SPCA will continue to monitor all local, state and federal guidance related to gatherings. We will abide by public health guidance and state orders related to the pandemic, so details for our event could change at any time.

The day begins with a chip-timed 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk for people only, our first ever “Little Paws” Fun Run for kiddos ages 4 to 10, which begins in front of the Richmond SPCA and ends in front of our neighbors at Feed More, followed by a dog-friendly, leisurely one-mile Dog Jog. Throughout the morning, we host a pet-friendly vendor fair, featuring a Kids’ Fun Zone and a Pets’ Fun Zone packed full of fun activities for the whole family at our humane center.

Your participation makes a lifesaving difference to pets in need. All proceeds raised aid in the rescue, medical treatment and adoption of dogs and cats here in Richmond, Virginia.
