Barks & Rec 5k

Barks & Rec 5k

Annually in late March/early April
Katherine Rose Memorial Park

Barks & Rec combines the best of Mansfield's parks with the pups our residents love so much into a unique combination of fitness and furry fun. In the spring, sign up for a weekly run at Katherine Rose Memorial Park. Each participant is paired with a dog from Mansfield Animal Care & Control. In the fall you and a pup can explore Oliver Nature Park with a morning hike. Either way, you both get exercise, humans have extra motivation to show up and the dogs have a better chance at adoption with the increased exposure and socialization.

In April everyone is invited to join us for the Barks & Rec 5k, a fun run open to all. Each runner has the option to attend either solo, with their own dog or with a dog from an area shelter. After the race, enjoy fun & entertainment celebrating our four-legged friends, complete with food, games, shopping and discounted adoptions.
