Humane Society 5k – 18th Annual Run for the Paws

Join the race to help shelter animals by participating in Humane Society Naples’ 18th Annual Run for the Paws 5K! Thousands of human participants and their canine companions have taken part in this race, providing our community with a healthy and fun event that gets bigger and better every year.

NEW LOCATION! Located at the Paradise Coast Sports Complex for the first time, the scenic flat course ensures that first-time walkers and runners can comfortably participate alongside more experienced runners. View the course map here.

Back this year: Virtual 5k! Support Humane Society Naples within your own comfort zone and join us virtually. Our virtual race is going to be a fun way to promote animal welfare and raise funds for our critical work in the community. Though we won’t run and walk together, we can still participate with a purpose – to save animal lives! A virtual 5k kit will be emailed to you prior to race day.
