FARMINGTON — The Franklin County Animal Shelter will host its annual Strut for Strays 5K Trail Run & Dog Walk at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, on the nordic trails of Titcomb Mountain and the Whistlestop Trail. Last year, more than $1,500 in sponsorships, registration fees and donations was raised. The shelter hopes to surpass that this year.

To help, businesses are needed to sponsor the race monetarily, or to donate items or prizes to use as race incentives. Businesses also are invited to join the race.

Registration is $20 for those 12 and younger, $25 for those 13 and older, and all registrations include an event T-shirt with logo custom designed by Catherine Chapman. Additional shirts, long-sleeved Ts, and hoodies also can be purchased along with race registration, online, or at the shelter.

For more information, check out the Events tab on the shelter’s website www.fcanimalshelter.org under 2017 Strut for Strays, and feel free to email Media and Fundraising Coordinator Dory Diaz at [email protected].
