About City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties Dog Dash & Cat Walk

CDRCK's First Annual Dog Dash & Cat Walk will take place Sunday, June 23, 2019 in Arlington's gorgeous Bluemont Park. The #CDRCK5k is for runners, walkers, and their dogs and cats! Join us, local animal lovers, and several other nonprofits to meet, celebrate, and raise funds for a deserving cause.


We thought it might be fun to spark some competition—we know how competitive you all are—so you'll be asked to join either "Team City Dogs" or "Team City Kitties." Let's see who can get the most registrations and funds raised! (Fundraising continues through July 21, 2019.)

The event features a professional pre-race warm-up & stretch, a professional announcer, live DJ, one of a kind CDRCK event gear, and just an amazing time with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and other generous action-takers like you!
