Mansfield Parks & Recreation has teamed up with Mansfield Animal Care & Control for a one of a kind event; the first annual Barks & Rec 5k, sponsored by Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. More than a fun run, participants will get a chance to run with a pup from the shelter, giving him or her some exercise and socialization and you a fun running buddy. Guests can also choose to bring their dog from home or run solo and keep hands free to pet all the new furry friends.
After the race, stick around for a full day of doggy fun, including games, shopping, entertainment and more, all geared for pups and the people who love them.
5k is $20/person and includes a t-shirt. Packet pickup will begin at 8am on race day.
Festival is free to attend and family-friendly.
All dogs are required to be leashed and NO retractable leashes are allowed. Dogs must be well-socialized and current on all vaccinations.
