Because of COVID-19, this year’s Franklin Animal Shleter 5K will be held as a virtual 5K. The dates are Saturday May 23rd and Sunday May 24th. Participants can register on line, and each participant will receive a bib. All registered participants may run anytime on the course, which is located on Daniel Webster Avenue in Franklin at Paul Smith School. The participants will keep their own time and submit their results after they run. All results need to be in by 6 pm Sunday, May 24. The course is U.S. track and field certified.
