The Second Annual Rescue Run 5K

September 28, 2014

    The Navy Yard, Philadelphia

The 2013 race sold out weeks before race day.  Don’t delay!  Early bird registration is OPEN!

The Rescue Run 5K  is Philly’s first race to benefit and promote rescue and adoption.  Annually in September, 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 non-profit volunteer group.  You in?  Register today. 



The Rescue Run got a sweet shout out on BeWellPhilly“Dog Lovers, I would like to introduce you to your new favorite 5k:  The Rescue Run.” (The Rescue Run was also highlighted on CBSPhilly, South Philly Review and The Bark magazine!)
