What is it?

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. 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 10:30 am for all participants.

A 25 m kids (of all ages) waddle will take place shortly before the main race.

Farm animal costumes are encouraged!
