Irvine Animal Care Center 2023 Virtual 5K Supports Animals in Need
Run or walk the Virtual 5K in April, and receive an exclusive medal while helping adoptable animals.

IRVINE, Calif. (March 15, 2023): The Irvine Animal Care Center invites all runners, walkers, and animal-lovers to support animals in need during its 2023 Virtual 5K throughout the month of April. Participants can self-time their pace and complete the Virtual 5K at any location April 1–30.

The Virtual 5K is a great way to support the health and well-being of animals in the center’s care. Participants can log 5K miles by completing walks around the neighborhood with household members, going for a run on the treadmill, or enjoying trail running or hiking.

To enter, participants must submit an entry fee of $35 at and complete the race by April 30. Racers who complete the Virtual 5K will receive an exclusive race medal and certificate. For an additional $8, participants can enter their four-legged friend to run with them in the Virtual 5K. Four-legged-racers will receive their very own medal for completing the race. All proceeds go toward special programs at the Irvine Animal Care Center, which provides sheltering, care, and enrichment for homeless, neglected, abused, or unwanted animals. Services include licensing for Irvine residents, pet adoptions, and events.
Registration opens March 23; visit for more information and to submit your entry fee. For questions, call the Irvine Animal Care Center at 949-724-7740.
