WillaMutt Strut Fun Run & Walk

Presented by


Enjoy a family and dog friendly outing on a flat and scenic course starting at the North Meadow of Salem’s Riverfront Park on Saturday, June 14th at 9:00 am.  Participants can choose one of three options:  a non-competitive 5K fun run, 5K walk, or 1.5K walk. You’ll strut across the Union Street Railroad Bridge, around Wallace Marine Park and back. And because we’re Willamette Humane Society, your dog is welcome to strut too!


Participate as an individual or form a pack (team) of friends and family – the more the merrier!  There is a $30/person registration fee, and you can register at Willamette Humane Society, or on the day of the event, June 14, 8 am, at the Riverfront Park North Pavilion. Once you’ve finished the walk or run, stick around. We’ll have contests and games for you and your four legged friend plus vendor booths and door prizes.  Maybe your dog will be this year’s WillaMutt!

All net proceeds from this event will help Willamette Humane Society care for the homeless animals needing shelter and services this summer.

Once registered, you can pickup your shirt and bib number at the Dog Bark South a week before the event at 1290 Hoyt St SE in Salem.
