Sprint to the sand to enjoy the one-time only opportunity to bring your canine companion onto “The World’s Most Famous Beach!” This special occasion is only available to those who join Halifax Humane Society at the 12th Annual Mutt Strutt 5K on Saturday, April 23, 2022. The 5K Fun Run/ Walk takes off at 9 a.m., with registration at 8 a.m. at the Daytona Beach Bandshell and Beach Area. If you or your dog are not a runner or walker, do not worry, it’s fine to just walk down to the ocean and play in the sand too.
The 5K fun run/walk is open to walkers, joggers, and runners of all ages and skill levels. Leashed and well-be-haved pets are welcome to join in the fun! Pre-registered participants for $25/person will receive a complimentary drink ticket, raffle ticket, and the 12th Annual Mutt Strutt T-Shirt.
The general admission pre-registration fee of $5 gives you and your dog access to the beach course, the vendor exhibits, and the bandshell with entertainment. Registration the day of the event is $5 additional.
This is a unique opportunity for pet owners who otherwise cannot bring their pet to the beach. Members of our community can enjoy the morning on the beach with their pet, while also supporting the animals here at Halifax Humane Society.
Halifax Humane Society is looking for Mutt Strutt individual participants, walk teams, vendors, and sponsors. To register and create a walk team, visit the event page at www.HHSMuttStrutt.org Special incentive prizes for top individual and team fundraisers will also be presented!
Our fundraising goal is $45,000. For information, please contact events@HalifaxHumaneSociety.org at 386.202.6639.
