We are so excited to begin the planning for our third annual Puppy Love 5k Race and Walk.

Thank you so much for joining us! 


Commons Park 
11600 Poinciana Blvd.
Royal Palm Beach, FL 33411
(Off Royal Palm Beach Blvd between Okeechobee Blvd. and Southern Blvd). 

The dedicated course at the park has some tricky spots. We have spoken to the Village's Parks Department and hope to have it more clearly marked. We will also have additional signs made and placed throughout the course for easier navigation. The Village also assures us all traffic will be closed off to course.


  • Race Day check-in will begin at 6:30 am

  • Our National Anthem, will be at approximately 7:15am

  • Race start is 7:30am with chip-timed runners at the start line first

  • Fun run/walk with your pet: your start is 7:30  behind chipped runners

Please, stay and play! Along with the Pet Costume Contest, stay and visit with adorable and adoptable pets.

Take a chance on the AMAZING raffle prizes that sponsors donated. Visit our sponsor's booths! Have some fun with photo opps!
