On your mark, get set, go! Pearland Parks and Recreation will be hosting their Ruff Runner 5k followed by a Yappy Hour on Saturday, September 25th at Independence Park.

Pearland Ruff Runner 2021

Tie up your running shoes and join the race, which will be just a little over 3 miles at Independence Park.

If a 5k isn’t your thing, fear not: there will be a 3K option for adults, and a 1k just for kids 14 years and under.

For the 1K and 3K you can opt to bring your pawfect furry friends to join you. No pet? Come join anyway to support Pearland Parks and Rec and dog-watch all the four-legged pups in the race.

For even more incentive to participate, there will be a post-race medal ceremony for all participants along with a Yappy Hour brought to you by Vallenson’s Brewing Company.

Each of the races will be staggered, with the Kids 1K beginning at 7:50 AM, the adult 5K at 8 AM, and the 3K at 8:15 AM. Event registration starts at $15 for the 1K and $20 for the 3K and 5K, and can be done online in advance here.

The event comes just in time for National Dog Week, which takes place annually over the last full week of September. While a fun celebration of our four-legged friends, National Dog Week places an emphasis on educating dog owners and the public about dog care and helping abused, lost, and homeless dogs find homes.
