The Rescue Run 5k is the main fundraiser for The Monster Milers, Philadelphia’s shelter dog running and rescue organization. Each year hundreds of runners join us to run for rescue (and meet a bunch of adoptable dogs on race morning.) Are you ready to see why this is an award-winning race?    

The Rescue Run 5k Perks:

  • Chip Timing

  • Tech T-Shirts for all pre-registered runners (Men’s and Women’s sizes available)

  • One complimentary beer for 21+ runners

  • Personalized Fundraising Pages

  • Team Set-Up (Form a Team! Join a Team! Lead a Team!)

  • Awards for Age Group Winners

  • Fundraising Prizes (Individual and Team)

  • Adoptable dogs at the race from our foster program, local shelters and rescues

  • Warm fuzzies knowing that you ran for rescue!
