For the Love of a Paw Howl-O-Ween 5k

Saturday, October 27, 2018

Whether you’re a regular participant, or looking to join your first ever 5K, you’ve come to the right place. For the Love of a Paw Howl-O-Ween 5k is an engaging and fun event, geared towards people of all ages and from all walks of life. The Howl-O-Ween 5k will feature a smooth, paved one-loop course that is accurately measured and professionally timed by the folks from Grounded Running Beaufort. We also have an untimed kids' race, custom awards, costume awards for both kids and adults and cool giveaways for everyone from our Pawsome Sponsors.  We're raising money to benefit For the Love of a Paw animal rescue which is working toward effective management of the domestic animal population in Orangeburg & Calhoun County through education, rescue, and owner services.  They are a 501(c)(3) and every penny above the cost of putting on this event will go directly to them.  If you're on a tight budget we have "no swag" options, which means you can pay a minimum fee to participate and still be eligible for awards, but you'll receive only a bib & chip at check-in.  For out-of-towners who can not participate, we also have virtual options.  Join us for a morning of family fun & fitness, no matter where you are!
