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.
