Race Information

Spring is almost here and what better way to celebrate than with a run with your pup!


We're going to have a pup-tastic time doing a 5K run benefitting the Gwinnett Humane Society!  


Come run your tails off with us in Downtown Sugar Hill on an AJCPTRR Certified Course.  


We're  getting some great race shirts, and we'll have some amazing awards to the top 3 M/F, top 3 master's M/F,  and the top 3 in each of the normal 5 year age groups.  We'll even award our three Fastest Dogs (running with their humans, of course!).


Runners, walkers, strollers, all dogs welcomed!

Rushing Trading Company will provide all runners with a FREE beverage after running their tails off!  Racers 21+ have the option of one of their craft beers (ID is required).  Plus, they will have hot chocolate (or iced coffee/tea if it's a warmer day) for younger runners or those who prefer a non-alcoholic beverage. Racers just need to bring their race bib to Rushing Trading Company's booth on the Promenade for their free beverage.


They will also have breakfast menu items for purchase inside or at their outside table service after the race too.


Our Event Beneficiary is the Gwinnett Humane Society.


We strive to prevent cruelty to animals and reduce pet overpopulation by educating the public regarding humane treatment of animals, promoting responsible pet ownership, and encouraging spaying/neutering of companion animals. GHS is a volunteer supported, 501c3 non-profit organization supported entirely by private donations. We receive no government funds and rely solely on donations and volunteers who donate their time and energy to improve the lives of pets and animals in our local community through Education, Support, Resource referral, and Adoption services. We strive to promote animal welfare, to prevent cruelty to animals, and to reduce pet overpopulation by:

  • Educating the public regarding the humane treatment of animals and responsible pet ownership

  • Encouraging the spaying and neutering of companion animals

  • Encouraging adoption of companion animals

  • Gwinnett Humane Society does not operate a shelter and receives no government funding; we rely solely on donations from individuals and companies to support our programs and on volunteers who donate their time and energy to carry out our mission.
