    The Navy Yard, Philadelphia

Just announced! We were awarded “Best of Philly 2015” - Race for a Cause.  For the second year in a row, this has been an award-winning event.  
Are you ready to see what all of the fuss is about?

The Rescue Run 5K was also named “Best Race - Best Run for a Cause” by Be Well Philly.  We honored to have been chosen to be the best race in 2014!

The Rescue Run 5K  is Philly’s first race to benefit and promote rescue and adoption.  Annually in the Fall, hundreds of runners gather at the Navy Yard to race in honor of the dogs we love so much.  Numerous rescue groups and shelters attend the Rescue Rally following the race.  Racers, spectators, family and friends are able to meet furry friends for adoption and get more information about volunteering with local animal shelters.  Proceeds go to continuing the mission of The Monster Milers, Philly’s shelter dog running and rescue, 501c3 non-profit volunteer group.  You in?  Register today.
