Couch or 5K III

Donut Run Back.jpg

Join us on Saturday, June 8th at The Woodlands in West Philadelphia for the 3rd annual Couch or 5k to benefit Misfit Manor and The Woodlands.

Runners of all levels are invited to join a fun, friendly and professionally timed race around the official Woodlands 5k loop, beginning at 9am. Your dog friends are welcome to run with you! There will be medals for top three adult (nonbinary, women, men), child and dog finishers, and prizes for 1st place winners. A post-run raffle will offer a chance to win additional prizes from local businesses.

Before, during and after the race, your hosts will be serving bottomless iced coffee generously provided by Grindcore House and endless vegan donuts from our friends at Dottie's Donuts. Participants can choose to run or relax--or both--on a beautiful summer morning, all in support of a good cause.

The event is a fundraiser for both The Woodlands, a National Historic Landmark and active cemetery that has blossomed into a vibrant community space, and Misfit Manor, a local nonprofit that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes at-risk animals, provides refuge to those that cannot be adopted out, and reduces the number of owner-surrenders by helping people care for their companion animals.
