Run with the Dogs


The race was held on May 13 after being postponed from April 30 because of water on the course.

This race is a fund raiser for the Humane Society of Saline County.

The 8th Annual Run with the Dogs 5K & 1-mile fun run will be held at Sunset Lake in Benton. 

Dates and details will be updated in early 2017

Thanks to the community support, the Striders have been able to present the Humane Society of Saline County with over $12,000 in the last seven years.


 Donations to the Humane Society may be made without it being an honorarium or memorial for a pet.
