If you are eager to enjoy a fun outdoor activity, the Fairview Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the return of Fairview’s Furry 5K on Saturday, October 23 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. in Bowie Nature Park.

Sponsored and co-hosted by Anytime Fitness, the outdoor event will serve as a fundraiser for the Humane Society and the Bowie Treehouse Playground Build project.

The Furry 5K is for runners of all levels with a timed 5K run plus a shorter Fun Run. Walkers with and without pets can also enjoy the event. Members of the schools cross country teams are sponsored to participate for free.

While the event is designed as mostly Fun Run and Walk with your favorite dog, there will be an option to be timed, if desired.

Registration is $35 and includes an event t-shirt. There will also be goody bags and other giveaways.

The Chamber is also currently seeking event sponsors, participants and local businesses who would like to get involved in a fun way. You can email for more information.
