The Thirteenth Annual Cat Caper 5K walk/run, benefiting the Cat Welfare Association, will be held Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, at Griggs Reservoir Park (2933 Riverside Drive Columbus, OH 43221).  The event will kick off with the kids run at 8:30am, followed by the 5K at 9am.  Post race activities include an amazing silent auction raffle, a pancake breakfast, the Catique resale shop, and great vendors!  

100% of the proceeds benefit Cat Welfare Association, a non-profit which has served Central Ohio since 1945.   Cat Welfare Association is dedicated to the care of and education about cats and kittens. Our pledge is to cherish, nurture and provide veterinary care for homeless, abused, injured, and abandoned felines. 

We strive to find each cat an appropriate, safe and loving home, allowing those not placed to live their lives in the care and comfort of our shelter.

Dogs can share in the fun too! Leashed and friendly dogs are welcome to attend and race alongside their owners. The first 3 canine-human pairs to cross the finish line will receive a prize. 

The first 350 human participants in the 5K will receive a t-shirt, a goodie bag and refreshments from our sponsors, and one raffle ticket. 

There will be awards for the top 3 male and female runners and walkers as well as age group winners.
