Road Race & Walk
9th Annual Road Race & Pet-Friendly Walk
Come to Fast Friends on Saturday, March 24, 2018, for the 9th annual Road Race & Pet-Friendly Walk to support the Greyhounds!
The 4.5-mile Road Race winds around the beautiful Yale Forest with views of Monadnock Mountain. For those who are not running enthusiasts, a 2-mile Pet-Friendly Walk along a scenic rail trail happens at the same time and is a non-competitive, low-impact way to have fun and support the greyhounds.
After race prizes are awarded, Fast Friends will open for tours of its state-of-the-art facility housing more than forty greyhounds as well as spaces for all-breed doggy daycare, boarding, grooming, and hydrotherapy. If weather permits, the Dog Park will also open for the enjoyment of our canine guests.
This is a dog-friendly day so please bring yours to join in the fun!
All proceeds from the event will go to caring for the more than 40 retired racing greyhounds waiting for their forever families at Fast Friends.
All events will take place at:
Fast Friends Greyhound Adoption Center
14 West Swanzey Road
Swanzey, NH 03446
