6th Annual run the pines for canines 5k

Our 6th Annual Run the Pines for Canines 5K is coming up on June 1st!  Get your sneakers and leashes ready!  

This dog-friendly 5K was started in 2013 by AHS/Popcorn Park volunteer, Justin Rand, and every year it has grown to be a bigger and better event.  All of the proceeds from this event benefit the animals cared for by AHS/Popcorn Park!  It's just $25 when you register in advance and $30 to register the day of the race.  Runner's bags are provided as well as a post-race breakfast and awards ceremony.  The 5K begins at the Bamber Lake Fire Dept. at 2630 Lacey Road, Forked River, which is within walking distance to Popcorn Park Animal Refuge.  Register in advance here.  And become a Fund Raiser for the event here.
