Rescue Run is the longest running (pun intended) dog- and family-friendly 5k and 1k fun run/walk in Columbus, Ohio. All proceeds from this event go directly to our foster cats and dogs – PetPromise has no paid staff and relies solely on the support of our volunteer efforts.
Rescue Run is held annually on Memorial Day weekend each year at McFerson Commons Park in the Arena District. The route runs from McFerson Commons to the Olentangy Trail and back, with start and finish at McFerson Commons.
Before and after the race, you and your dog can play in the park, shop at vendor and sponsor booths, get your portrait taken, and much more!
Metered and garage parking is available in the area. Parking fees are not included with registration fees.
