Run or Walk a 5K, and Support Animals in Need

The Irvine Animal Care Center is inviting all runners, walkers, and animal-lovers to take part in its 2021 Virtual 5K throughout the month of April to support animals in need. 

How to Get Involved

Submit an entry fee of $35, complete the 5K between April 1 and April 30, and receive your exclusive medal and certificate. Enter your four-legged friends for an additional $8, and they'll receive their very own medal for accompanying you on the 5K. Proceeds go toward special programs for the animals.

How Does a Virtual 5K Work?

Virtual 5K events can be done at your own pace, running or walking. Complete your race anywhere, any time. You can even include your four-legged friends! Remember to monitor your race time, so you can fill it in on your certificate.

Share Your Progress

Want to brag about your time, show off your four-legged running buddy, or see how fellow participants are doing? Share your photos or 5K updates on the Irvine Animal Care Center’s Facebook page at facebook.com/irvineanimals, or on Instagram using the hashtag #irvineanimals5k.
