The Jackalope 5K is a fun run/walk event hosted by BDAR in Laramie. This untimed fun event is dog and kid friendly. The course follows a beautiful loop along the Laramie River, starting in Optimist Park. This year's event includes various race registration options, including the option to stay at home on the couch and get your merchandise anyway!
Every year, for nearly 10 years, Black Dog Animal Rescue has worked tirelessly to afford second chances to forgotten shelter pets across Wyoming and the region. In 2016 alone, more than 500 homeless dogs and cats were adopted thanks to BDAR's efforts.
