2018 Run For Their Lives 5K

October 20, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am

Run For Their Lives 5k 2018-10-20

Join fellow animal lovers in warm-ups before tackling a unique course that may be new to you. Our 5K features some long grades up and down, a view of a geese-filled lake and a challenging start and finish. Get ready to run with SAFE Haven for Cats for the 6th Run for Their Lives 5K to raise money for homeless cats on Saturday, October 20, 2018. The race will start and finish at SAFE Haven for Cats (8431-137 Garvey Drive, Raleigh, NC 27616).

For all ages and very family friendly the race is in North Raleigh where parking is easy and we are near Wake Forest, Rolesville and Zebulon too. The event includes a timed 5K race and an untimed 5K Fun Run/Walk. Dogs can run/walk with their owners in the Fun Run/Walk and strollers are welcome too!

We have lots of vendors from fitness experts to the latest in pet items from local pet stores. You can shop for cute cat beds and doggie leashes! This event is for competitive runners, recreational runners, walkers, families and individuals. Join us and 300 of your closest animal lovers to help save lives.

What is the best thing about SAFE Haven’s 5K? That after you finish your race you can come inside SAFE Haven and pet kittens. AND you can see all the wonderful cats we have for adoption. This is surely better than being blasted with dye, right?
