Grab a (PAW)tner and go for a run. Mansfield Barks & Rec 5K is set for March 24

Mar 16, 2018 11:14AM ● By Lisa Drake
Looking for a fun way to get some exercise, help out your community and make a furry friend or two? Hosted by the City of Mansfield Parks & Recreation Department and sponsored by Methodist Mansfield Medical Center - Mansfield, TX, this is a 5k fun run with a PAWSitive goal! Mansfield’s Barks and Rec 5k is not just doggy-themed, but participants who sign up have the option to actually run with a dog from the animal shelter. The human gets a fun running partner, and the pup can enjoy a morning of fresh air and exercise at the park! 

Over 100 dogs from four different area shelters will be on hand to participate in the event, and hopefully find their forever homes. After the race, dog-themed vendors will have food and boutique items for sale while guests enjoy entertainment from agility groups, dog trainers and more. We’ll even have doggy photo ops and puppy petting zoos! All proceeds from the day benefit the Mansfield Animal Care and Control shelter.

We've got additional details in our
events calendar.
