Run Fur Fun 5K

Race Information


Six hundred runners and walkers, and several hundred dogs, enjoyed a morning of sunshine and fun at our new Run Fur Fun venue, New Belgium Brewing! Participants also enjoyed live music, sponsor booths, a pancake breakfast, prizes, and a kids fun run. More than $12,400.00 was raised to help us save lives! Thank you to all our event sponsors, participants and event volunteers for making this race a success. Mark your calendar to join us for the 6th Annual Run Fur Fun 5K on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at New Belgium Brewery!


The Run Fur Fun is geared for the whole family, even your dogs!
