Event Details

"Buddy's Run to the Rescue" is a 5K Race, Fun Run, 1-mile dog walk, and Kid's Fun Run that will wander through the streets of historic Jefferson, Texas.  Held in conjunction with the fundraising event, Woofstock, all proceeds will benefit the Friends of Jefferson Animals and is a family and dog friendly event.  As Marion County's only provider of animal rescue, the Friends of Jefferson Animals (also known as FOJA) are reliant upon donations and volunteers to continue their efforts.  Buddy, the namesake of our run, is one of FOJA's earliest rescues... and is well-known celebrity in town.  

5K RACE (TIMED RACE) PARTICIPANTS will be awarded trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the following age divisions for males and females:  age 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-90.  

Online registration is available through 9/17/2024, with Early Bird Discount available until 7/9/24.  Walk up registrants will be accepted the day of the race until 6:15 am  

T-shirts go to print on August 1... and sizes may be limited for late registrants.  However, you are welcome to register until September 17th to join in the fun!
