A little fun, walk and run . . . for the kitties


Revel in a balmy July eve and run, walk, or jog to help homeless cats at the CATnip 5k & Mouse Miler benefiting Cat Adoption Team.  The event steps off Saturday, July 28 at 6pm; on-site registration opens at 4.  The run moves through Tualatin Community and Durham Parks and along the treed streets of Durham.  Walkers will enjoy the unpaved tree-lined path along the Tualatin River.

For serious runners, the CATnip is one of the only USATF-certified 5ks that also offers a fast timed mile race.  The CATnip boasts 5k finishes of just over 15 minutes.

This year’s event has a new location, route and date, but retains its purr-fect features:  CATnip Cookie Awards for fastest finishers, great goodie bags, balloon art, raffle items and vendors.  Well-mannered/leashed dogs are welcome.  All proceeds help homeless cats at CAT, fund low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, and stock the CAT food bank.


To register, see sponsors, or obtain pledge forms, visit catnip5k.org.  Registration for the 5k and Miler is $20 (kids $150); CATnip tees $15.  Like the CATnip 5k on Facebook for the latest details.
