The Mutt Strut 5K & Fun Mile

We Want YOU to be Part of the Furry Fun!

What is the Mutt Strut 5K & Fun Mile?

Cape Coral Lifestyle is hosting a family- and pet-friendly walk/run event to help raise money for the future Cape Coral Animal Shelter. The morning will kick off in front of the Wicked Dolphin Distillery with the 5K race. If you are a competitive runner or just want to jog with the dog, this flat loop course will run past the build site of the future home of the animal shelter. Your run will be professionally timed by LinMark Sports, and the top three males and females will be given awards. Not a runner? Bring the kids, grandkids and doggies out for the Fun Mile, which will also go past the future build site.

After you cross the finish line, we will have a tail-waggin’ good time at the Mutt Strut post-race party! The venue will include food, vendors, music and awards for cutest and best-dressed pets! The post-race party is open to the community. Even if you aren’t registered for the race, we encourage you to come out, enjoy the fun and cheer on the runners.

How can you get involved?

We are looking for table vendors and local businesses that would like to be a sponsor. Please contact Erika Smiley at 239.206.1197 for sponsorship opportunities. We are also in need of volunteers to help on the course. This is a great opportunity for high school students to get volunteer hours! Please email us at if you would like to volunteer!
