Online Race Registration

Get your tail moving and join the Belleville Area Humane Society‘s annual Race for Rescues at Belleville West High School on Sunday, April 22nd!

This year, we’re offering an early bird special! Registration will be $20 ($30 for long sleeve shirts) until March 15th, and on March 16th, we’ll raise the price to $25 ($35 for long sleeves).

You can race on your own or with your dog. We’ll be holding a timed event for both humans and canines. The top three division winners in each age group will receive a shiny medal and bragging rights! Top three overall winners in both the male and female divisions will receive trophies. Participants of all ages and physical capabilities welcome–we’re having a one-mile fun run and kid’s fun run this year.

Every registrant will receive a t-shirt and will be timed and eligible to win races. Long sleeve shirts will also be available for an extra $10.00 until April 12th. Long-sleeved shirts sell out fast, so be sure to pre-order if you want one. Registered dogs will receive a bandana with the Race for Rescues logo.

Packets may be picked up at the Belleville Area Humane Society on Thursday, April 19th from 11-5 or Saturday, April 21st from 11-3.

All remaining packets will be available after 7:30 AM on the event date at Belleville West High School.

Come out for exercise and excitement to help raise money for shelter animals. We’ll be showing off some of our adoptable buddies and selling other BAHS t-shirts. Come even if you can’t run!

After the race, The Egg & I Restaurant will be cooking up some post-race pancakes.
