Fremont,– Runner and walker registrations for the 14th annual Run Forrest Run event on Saturday, June 2, at Branstrom Park in Fremont are now available.
Run Forrest Run is a benefit run for Bellwether Harbor Animal Shelter & Training Facility in Fremont. Run Forrest Run is named after an unforgettable beagle at the shelter that took every opportunity to escape and stretch his legs around the facility much to the chagrin of the staff, said Danielle Merrill, Bellwether executive director and trainer.
Run Forrest Run has two events in one so anyone can participate and we encourage participants to bring their dog. The 5K race is timed and uses the Fremont cross country course which features hilly terrain and unique vistas through the wooded course. The one-mile walk is on a paved trail with some hills but suitable for a stroller.
All racers are encouraged to participate with their four-legged friends. Unique themed medals will be given to the first and second male and female finishers with the fastest time as well as the first male and female finisher running with a dog to cross the finish line.
“Run Forrest Run is one of Bellwether Harbor’s largest annual fund raisers that benefits the dogs and cats in our shelter,” said Wendy Sinicki, Development Director. “We want to thank our sponsors who support this event. Our Gold sponsors are the Fremont Area Community Foundation, Joan & Company, Magna Mirrors of America, Inc., MPH Logistics, Noah’s Pet Cemetery, Heil/Paulsen Heating & Cooling, and Rob Scholtens Plumbing and Heating.”
