On Saturday, September 27, 2014 Furry Friends Network (FFN) will hold its 9th annual Race for Their Lives 5K trail run and 2-mile fun walk at Gifford Pinchot State Park, Conewago Day Use Area. This year we race forpeace, love and HOPE and to ultimately save more lives! Your support for Race for Their Lives will not only help animals presently in need but will also make a difference in the lives of animals who need help in the future.
As we continue to pay our blessings forward, FFN has chosen the Hounds of Prison Education, HOPE Program as our Race For Their Lives2014 honorary organization. FFN will donate 5% of net proceeds from Race for Their Lives to the HOPE Program in hopes of giving more dogs a paw up on finding families who will give them the peace and love they so much deserve!

5K RUN & 2 -MILE FUN WALK
Starting on the paved parking lot at the Conewago Day Use area (directly adjacent
to Pavilion #2) the course heads east, making an approximately 6/10 of a mile
oval on the parking lot before entering the Lakeside Trail at the eastern end of the
parking area. The course follows the Lakeside Trail to the Alpine Trail, just past
the 1 mile point. The course continues on the Alpine Trail until it meets the Gravel
Trail, just south and behind Pavilion #2. It follows the Gravel Trail going parallel to
the Conewago Day Use area until it turns left and out to a flat, maintenance area,
turning right and going up the only major hill on the course. (Just before the left
turn, the walkers will be directed to continue straight on, following the green trail
flags and signs until they eventually rejoin the Lakeside Trail, past the Interpretive
Center, along the old beach front, and proceed to the finish). After the runners
descend the hill, they will continue straight on crossing the Oak Trail just before
the 2 mile point. The runners continue on, turning right at the transformer
station, going about 100 yards. They will then turn right onto the Lakeside Trail.
The course continues on the Lakeside Trail to the old beachfront, past the
children’s play area just before the 3 mile point, and proceeds to a short, right
turn uphill to the finish on the paved, parking road.
