The 17th Annual Canine Classic 5K
Join us Saturday, September 14th for the 17th Annual Canine Classic 5K!

The Canine Classic 5K Race is directed by the Humane Society of West Alabama in conjunction with the Tuscaloosa Track Club. The first 100 participants will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Sports drinks, fruit, and water will be available for participants. This race is runner and walker-friendly, but it is for people only. Dogs are welcome at the event, but cannot participate for safety reasons. Happening September 14th at Kentuck Park in Northport, registration will begin at 7am for an 8am start time. This is an official race of the 2019 Tuscaloosa Track Club Grand Prix of West Alabama (certified course #AL15049JD). 

The Canine Classic is a great way to get out, be active, and have some fun while supporting the HSWA. We are a no-kill, all volunteer 501(c)3 charity that runs entirely off of private donations and fundraisers, like this!
