7th Annual Scentral Park 5K Run/Walk set for May 1

GREENVILLE — The 7th Annual Scentral Park Dog Park 5K Walk/Run will be held Saturday May 1, 2021, beginning at 9 a.m., at the Darke County Fairgrounds.

Bring your dog along as a participant to walk or run with you. All dogs must be on a leash, in a stroller/wagon or be carried. Don’t have a dog? No problem! Come, join the race, and walk or run among friends for a great cause. Medals will be awarded to those racing with dogs as well as those racing without. Same day registration at the fairgrounds is available, and early registration is encouraged at www.gtraces.com

All proceeds from this 5K race will go toward the upkeep, maintenance and improvements to Scentral Park Dog Park (next to the Animal Shelter), located at 5066 County Home Road, in Greenville. Scentral Park, Darke County’s only dog park, was opened in March, 2013, by The Friends of the Shelter, who raised the necessary funds from donations, grants and fundraisers. No taxpayer money was used for this effort.
