Calling all four-legged friends in northern Colorado…it’s time for the Fire Hydrant 5K! This annual race has benefited the Larimer Humane Society for more than 25 years, and Burt’s Logo Apparel is proud to be a part of this exciting event on Saturday, June 3. Here are all the details you need to know:
All animal lovers who want to benefit a good cause are invited to this race! Pooches are welcomed too, but please keep in mind that they must be well-behaved, leashed on a six-foot or shorter non-retractable leashed and be up to date on their vaccinations. If your dog tends to get a little anxious in large crowds, this may not be the event for them since there will be 500 dogs and 1,000 people in attendance.
In addition to the 5K race, all are invited to attend the Paws on the Promenade Expo during and following the race. Numerous vendors will have booths set up (including Burt’s!), and there will be opportunities to win fun prizes through dog demonstrations and contests. Plus, the event will have adoptable pets onsite, live entertainment, a “Kid Zone” and more!
