CARA Run For Their Lives!

Sanford, NC

The 9th Annual Run for Their Lives! is a 5K & 10K RUN that benefits Carolina Animal Rescue & Adoption. CARA is a non-profit / no-kill animal rescue located in Sanford. The 10K Race begins at 8:00 am and the 5K begins at 8:15 am (both races begin at the same start line location inside Kiwanis Park).

The race has a beautiful course which winds through Kiwanis Park and Sanford’s Greenway, as well as into the Historic (hilly!) neighborhoods of Sanford. 

For the 5K and 10K you may choose between the timed race or an untimed fun run.

Leashed/vaccinated dogs are allowed to run with their owners.  Run or walk with your dog, your kids, your neighbors, or your friends.  Remember that dogs, like people, need to prepare for a race.

Strollers and DOGS  are welcome! (Walking pace for 5k only please)

Pre-Registered runners guaranteed t-shirt through August 15th. You may choose to substitute a moisture wick (dry-wick) shirt for an additional $5.  Runners who register after August 15th will receive a t-shirt only if their size is available.  

Prefer to Sleep For Their Lives? If you won’t be able to participate but would still like to support Run For Their Lives! and CARA, simply register as normal and you’ll have the option to have your t-shirt  shipped to you. (T-Shirt guaranteed through August 15th).
