Adams County SPCA Loyalty 5K
May 12, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Because of its special Civil War connection, each year the Adams County SPCA, located in Gettysburg, PA, holds its annual Loyalty Walk commemorating the many dogs that served as unit mascots during the Civil War. Two of the statues located on the Gettysburg Battlefield include dogs – the monument to the 11th PA, which depicts Sallie, the unit’s mascot, who survived the famous battle, and an Irish Wolfhound, depicted on the monument to the Irish Brigade. This year we are adding a timed 5K which can be run with your dog.
The event will be held on May 12, 2018 beginning at the Gettysburg Area Middle School, 37 Lefever St., Gettysburg, PA and winding through the Culp’s Hill area of the Gettysburg Battlefield. Start time is 8:30 a.m. All finishers will receive a medal specially designed to commemorate the event. Runners can pick up bibs on Friday, May 11th, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the ACSCPA Shelter, 11 Goldenville Rd. Gettysburg, PA or on the morning of the run beginning at 7 a.m. at the start location. The registration fee is $35.00 (regardless of whether the runner will run with a dog or not). Water will be provided at the beginning and end of the run but not on the course. Poop bags will be available to those running with their dogs. The humane officer will monitor the course to ensure that animals are not stressed. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 male and female finishers overall and also in the following categories: Aged 25 and under, 26 – 40, over 40. Prizes will also be awarded to the top 3 canine finishers. There will be food and vendors at the start/finish line as well as a dog-owner costume competition at 9:30. Running prizes will be awarded at 10:15 a.m. Rain or shine, come join the fun!
