It’s that time of year again! Lace up those dusty running shoes and get Fido prepared to race!

The Animal Defense League will be hosting our 4th Annual ADL 5K Run and Kid’s 1K Trick-or-Trot on Saturday, October 20th at 8:30 am. The race will be held at the McAllister Park Trailhead, 13102 Jones Maltsberger Rd, San Antonio, Texas 78247.  Candy stations will be placed along the course of the Kid’s 1K until your little one has finished with a bag full of treats. The kid’s race will begin 30 minutes prior to the 5k. There will also be pet related vendors and a costume contest for children and pets. Pet owners and kids must be registered participants to join the costume contest. This is a dog-friendly event! All dogs are welcome to participate with proof of an up-to-date rabies vaccination. Make sure to both wear your costume and be ready for lots of furry fun!

We’re incredibly grateful for our partners at HEB for being the title sponsors of the run again this year! Follow our Facebook event page and our event page at for the list of participating vendors.

ADL 5k

It’s $40 to run in the 5K for adults. Every runner age 13 or older will receive a runner’s packet with race tag, timing chip, water bottle, and a t-shirt. As of October 10th, shirt sizes cannot be guaranteed and are subject to availability. (Don’t fret, though! We ordered a lot of shirts, so you will probably get the size requested…we just can’t guarantee it at this late date. Thank you!)
