Run Your Tail Off 5K

DAWS 5K Logo

One of the busiest race weekends of the spring is this week with numerous 5k’s being held throughout the region and the big Cheshire half marathon/5k taking place on Sunday.

One of the new exciting races on Sunday is the first annual Run Your Tail Off 5k in Danbury with all proceeds going to benefit the Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS). The race is being held at the Matrix Center at 39 Old Ridgebury Road in Danbury. DAWS is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in the community.

The best aspect of this race is runners can run the course with their dogs! So if your best four-legged friend is up for a great run or walk for a good cause this is the race for you. The weather looks perfect for this weekend so if you want to share a run with your dog get out and support DAWS.

Bib pick-up opens at 8:30 a.m. A Kids Fun Run starts at 9:10 a.m. and adults (without dogs) will start at 9:30 a.m., followed by adults (with dogs) at 9:40 a.m.
