Run for the Animals

May 20, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

RESCHEDULED- RUN FOR THE ANIMALS. Due to the impending coastal storm that will be hitting Brigantine this Saturday with flooding, heavy rain and gusts to 30 mph, we are postponing our run until Saturday, May 20th. Everything will remain the same- Laguna with race start at 9am. This may cause some inconvenience to some, but we do want to have a SAFE run. Notice will be going out to all runners- If you cannot run next week and would still like the t-shirt, please email us at mmsc@verizon.net. We will mail your shirt. If you need a refund, please email. ($20 pays for meals for several seals, so you might want to consider a donation 🙂 We hope that everyone will be joining us next Saturday for a beautiful day in Brigantine Beach!

The race starts at 9:00 am, with registration beginning at 7:30 am. After the race, participants can enjoy a full brunch buffet, courtesy of Laguna Grill & Rum Bar. There will be an after-run block party that is free to attend, and includes crafts, games, drawings and a best dressed pet contest – – so dress your pets to impress!

A $10 pet entry fee includes a chance to win great prizes for funniest, most original, and best dressed child/dog team.
(Proceeds from the pet contest will support MMSC & Beacon Animal Rescue)

All attendees (runners and non-runners) may purchase raffle tickets to be used at our great auction the day of the event!

Registration for the 5K is as follows:
$30 for registration (with a t-shirt)
$30 for registration on race day (with limited t-shirts)
Registration is FREE for anyone who raises $200 or more in donations.
