2017 Annual Gathering, 5k, Meeting

The 5K Fun Run will be a fun way for greyhound owners to meet and show off their dogs and help educate the public about greyhounds as the same time. Most people have never been up close with a greyhound and have never met one of these gentle giants. A special event that will raise money to support Heartland Greyhound Adoption!

Join us for a day of Greyt Fun! The 5K Runners/walkers will travel a course through the town of Altoona. Although the dogs will not participate in the 5K, greyhounds and their owners will walk in the Grey Parade!
