Run for Rover set at Thomas University

THOMASVILLE — Paws are set to strut for a good cause Saturday.

The Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society’s (TTCHS) 21st annual Run For Rover 5K Run/Walk begins at 9 a.m. at Thomas University.

Participants have the option to run or walk through the Rose City, and unlike the usual 5K, furry friends are welcome.

Registrants are encouraged to bring their leashed dog to run or to walk with them for a morning of exercise.

There also will be a one-mile Fun Run for children 12 and under immediately following the 5K.

“We invite the canine community, and their humans, to join us for this fun event. Run for Rover has been a success for the past 20 years, and we plan to continue that tradition Saturday,” said Sarah Kilgore, TTCHS board member.

Proceeds from fund-raisers such as Run for Rover support the Humane Society’s many programs.

“The programs benefit our community, and more importantly, its animals,” Kilgore said.

Race-day registration will be from 8 to 8:45 a.m. Registration is $20 per runner.

Race-day registrants will receive an official Run For Rover T-shirt while supplies last.

Trophies will be awarded to first-place overall male and female runners, first-place male and female runners in each age group, first-place runner and walker with dog and first-place male and female fun runners.

Medals also will be awarded to first-place male and female walkers in each age group. Age groups are 19 and under, 20 to 34, 35 to 49, and 50 and over.
