About the event
Each spring the Fast Friends Road Race & Pet Friendly Walk has the honor of being one of the first races in the area. This USATF certified, 4.5-mile Road Race winds around the beautiful Yale Forest with views of Mount Monadnock. For those who are not running enthusiasts, a 2-mile Pet-Friendly Walk along a scenic rail trail happens at the same time and is a non-competitive, low-impact way to have fun and support the greyhounds.
After race prizes are awarded, Fast Friends will open for tours of its state-of-the-art facility housing more than forty Greyhounds as well as spaces for all-breed doggy daycare, boarding, grooming, and hydrotherapy.
All proceeds from the event will go to caring for the more than 40 retired
racing Greyhounds waiting for their forever families at Fast Friends.

Fast Friends Greyhound Adoption was found in 1992. We have found homes for over 1000 dogs, placing 100 last year alone. We are committed to finding homes for sighthounds from around the world. Last year we rescues galgos (Spanish Greyhounds) from Spain, Borzoi, Afghan Hounds and Greyhounds from the Chinese meat markets This year we anticipate an increase need with the passing of current legislation in Florida which brings an end to greyhound racing by 2020.
Our mission is to help dogs in need, caring for them and matching them with loving homes. With your support, dogs from across the country and around the world have come to Fast Friends to begin their new lives. Together, we can help even more dogs in need have the futures they deserve!
