What: A morning jog with a dog can be a refreshing start to the day, but throw in several dozen canines and runners, and you’ve got yourself a pack of do-gooders. The Trails and Tails 5K will benefit the Asheville Humane Society and the Buncombe County Sports Park. Serious runners are encouraged to race (without their dogs) at 8:30 a.m. for cash prizes. If you’d rather take a stroll or go for a more casual run, well-behaved dogs are invited to jog beside their humans at 10 a.m. Whether you’re able to make it to the race or not, the Asheville Humane Society is always looking for donations of kitty litter, toys, paper towels and food for dogs and cats.
When: Saturday, Nov. 19. 8:30 a.m. humans only. Dogs and people at 10 a.m.
Where: The Buncombe County Sports Park in Candler
Price: $25 to run, free to watch
