The Fast & The Furriest is back again for its 10th year! Our fitness event is the only 5K where dogs are not only welcome, they are encouraged to join the fun. Join hundreds of animal lovers and their four-legged friends as we run and walk to raise money for the life saving mission of the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County. Participants can choose to compete in the chip-timed 5K or stroll in the one mile walk. Afterwards, relax with us and enjoy the afternoon on the Humane Society lawn with food vendors, music and fun. We are located near beautiful Shelby Farms.
