The Ruff Run and Agility 5K (approximately 3.1 miles) is a course you can complete with or without your pet. You will have the option to work through an agility course or to run/walk the 3.1 mile course. There is no competition, you and your pet are first as long as you finish. We encourage all levels to participate and show off your skills. There is no time limit to finish the course but if you are competitive feel free to run for your best time.
Date & Time: October 22, 2016 – 8am- 1pm

The Ruff Run and Agility 5K is coming for the first time to Gilbert, Arizona to help support the AZ Furry Friends Rescue Foundation, a 501c3 organization. AZ Furry Friends Rescue has helped save the lives of over 1,500 pets and is in need of transportation for the current and future pets in the rescue. The rescue’s goal is to raise $20,000 dollars with your support. This will enable the foundation to better achieve their mission to rescue cats and dogs that are at risk of euthanasia at local kill shelters. It is the rescue’s mission to socialize and rehabilitate these animals so they can be adoptable and find their forever families. “....and unto God I will commit my cause”. Job 5:8
All booths and rescues will be operational by 9am and will remain until 1pm
We will be holding a contest for team participation. Whether your team members are there to walk, run or just support, their donations count. The top 3 teams with the highest donations by race day will receive a prize. All team balances will be updated weekly on our Facebook and Instagram page. The winning team will also be publicized on our Facebook/ Instagram page. We encourage costumes to show team support. GOOD LUCK TEAMS!!!
