Doggonit, Riverfront Park is going to the animals!
Join us for the sixth annual WillaMutt Strut, Willamette Humane Society’s 5K Fun run/walk, on Sunday, June 4, 2017.
Grab your tennis shoes (and leash) because Willamette Humane Society is hosting its annual WillaMutt Strut on June 4, 2017. Take part in the full 5K (run and walk) or The Strut, a shorter (less than 1K) walk, and then join us for food, brews, music, dog training demonstrations, and more—all to support local pets in need. Don't worry about your time. This is a FUN run.
Registration for the event is open. Just click on the “Registration” tab on the right to get started.
Individual registration is $30 (through May 26; $35 after), which includes admission to the race and a race t-shirt. Please note that while we do accept day-of registration, a t-shirt and size selection is not guaranteed. The race will begin at 10:30 a.m. The 5K course will take you around Riverfront Park, across the walking bridge, and through Wallace Marine Park. The Strut (less than 1K) is around Riverfront Park.
