About This Event
Run, walk or pounce your way to your own personal finish line at 2020's VIRTUAL Meow Mile 5K!

While we sadly won't be meeting in person this year, you can still get moving to benefit the Gifford Cat Shelter as we provide housing, medical care, and eventually forever homes for cats in need.

How it works: Log 3.1 miles anytime between Friday October 16th and Sunday October 18th and fill in your time the survey sent out to participants. Use whatever app/method works for you: Strava, Fitbit, Garmin, Charity Miles, Mapmyrun, etc. - we won't be awarding prizes for speed, so it's quite flexible.

All entrants will receive a Meow Mile neck gaiter (aka "buff") good as a face covering, sweat band, and neck warmer for cooler times, and will be entered to win a gift card TBD.
