Run Walk Wag benefits Rescued ‘n Ready Animal Foundation

Event serves as graduation goal run for RoCo Fit

CLAREMORE —

Rescued ‘n Ready Animal Foundation will host the 2nd Annual Run Walk Wag 5K race and one mile fun run/dog walk on Friday at Claremore Lake.
The event, benefiting the animal foundation, will serve as the graduation goal run for RoCo Fit, a local free fitness training program.
“We’re looking to get a good group of people out to support two great causes,” said Scott Marsh with Rescued ‘n Ready.
Rescued ‘n Ready is a 100 percent volunteer-based pet rescue and foster organization. In the last year, about 350 dogs and cats have been fostered or adopted through the foundation, Marsh said.
He said that while last year’s run was held at Mohawk Park in Tulsa, Marsh and other organizers decided to bring the event to Claremore this time.
“We felt it would be better to bring it to our community this year,” he said. “We’re utilizing our great park trail system and bringing people to our town.”
He hopes it will be an annual or bi-annual event.
Race day’s schedule of events include registration and packet pickup at 4:30 p.m., one mile fun run/dog walk at 5:30, 5K race at 6 and awards ceremony at 7:30.
Awards will be given to the overall male and female finishers, and the top three males and females in standard age groups.
The race is for all ages and abilities and strollers are welcome.
Registration fee for the 5K is $25 ($30 on race day) or $20 ($25 on race day) for the fun run/dog walk, and includes a barbecue meal. Additional meals for family and friends may be purchased with race registration for $8 each.
