Race for Rescues 5k

April 14



Get your tail moving and join the Belleville Area Humane Society‘s annual Race for Rescues at Belleville West High School on Sunday, April 14!

This year, we’re offering an early bird special!

Registration will be $25 until March 15th, and on March 16th, we’ll raise the price to $30. We also have a 10% military discount. Dogs race for free, though $7 bandannas will be available for purchase at the race.

You can race on your own or with your dog. We’ll be holding a timed event for both humans and canines. The top three division winners in each age group will receive a shiny medal and bragging rights! Top three overall winners in both the male and female divisions will receive trophies. Participants of all ages and physical capabilities welcome–we’re having a one mile fun run and kid’s fun run this year.

Every registrant will receive a t-shirt and will be timed and eligible to win races.

Age group divisions are as follows:

13 and under
60 and over

Packet pick up is as follows:

Belleville Area Humane Society on Thursday 4/11 from 12-6PM

Belleville Area Humane Society on Saturday 4/13 from 12-4PM

All remaining packets will be available after 7:30 AM on the event date at Belleville West High School.

Come out for exercise and excitement to help raise money for shelter animals. We’ll be showing off some of our adoptable buddies and selling other BAHS t-shirts so come even if you can’t run.
