This year, for the first time, Run for the Animals is going VIRTUAL! 

In order to keep you safe, we have made the difficult decision to not meet in person this year, and instead hold a virtual race! 

What is a virtual race?

A Virtual Race is a race you can run at any location, at your pace, outside or on a treadmill, alone or with a group of friends.

This is our 25th Anniversary- so it only makes sense for this year to be a little special!

There are some huge benefits of running a virtual race- you can run it anywhere, anytime you want, as long as you finish between September 27 and October 11! You don't have to live in Monroe County to compete!

And best of all- there are no winners! We will not be asking anyone to submit any times- just post pictures on Facebook and Instagram and use #MCHA2020Run so that we can see everyone out getting some exercise and supporting MCHA! You can register your pet too - cat, dog, bearded dragon!  This is open for ALL members of the family!

Participants will still get some cool merch, including a bib number, “dog tag” with paw print etched with “MCHA Run for the Animals 2020” on the back, swag from area businesses, instructions for participation, and an RFTA sticker. To be guaranteed a bib number and tag, please register by September 25.

Deadline to register is October 10.

We can't wait to see your smiling faces! Thank you so much for being supporters of our mission and helping us provide essential services to the Monroe County community!
