Event Details

Run, jog, or waddle this 5 km or 1.0 mi course in the beautiful Racho Reata Canyon trail system to support southeastern Washington’s only rescue and sanctuary for farm animals. This scenic route will take place on single-track trails with some paved neighborhood roads starting and finishing at the animal sanctuary.  We will also have a kids 25 m waddle, (farm) animal costumes are encouraged!  Join us at the sanctuary after the run/waddle to meet the animals you are helping to support. We will have a sanctuary tour after the run starting at 10:15 am for all participants.

A 25 m kids (of all ages) waddle will take place shortly before the main race.  Awards will be given for the best duck-like waddle and best duck costume. 

Farm animal costumes are encouraged!

The top 3 male finishers and the top 3 female finishers for the 5k as well as the first-place finisher for the 1.0 miles will receive an etched glass mason jar. 

The first 20 participants to sign up for the 5k or 1 mi will receive native plant seeds in their finisher packet.

The address of the sanctuary will be emailed to registered participants on Oct 17th.  

Race participants and visitors are expected to follow the visitor guidelines for the safety of all animals, birds, and people at the sanctuary.  Please review the guidelines here:  https://tumbleweedanimalsanctuary.org/events/run-for-the-animals/
