The event is for all ages and is very family friendly. The race is in North Raleigh where parking is easy and we are near Wake Forest, Rolesville and Zebulon too.

The event includes a timed 5K race and an untimed 5K Fun Run/Walk. Dogs can run/walk with their owners in the Fun Run/Walk and strollers are welcome too!

We have lots of vendors from fitness experts to the latest in pet items from local pet stores. You can shop for cute cat beds and doggie leashes!

What is the best thing about SAFE Haven’s 5K? After you finish your race you can come inside SAFE Haven and pet kittens. and you can see all the wonderful cats we have for adoption. This is surely better than being blasted with dye, right?
