Omega Tau Sigma, the professional veterinary fraternity, is proud to host the 24th annual 5K Road Race for Animals.  The run/walk serves to promote the health of our community and to celebrate the human-animal bond.

The race flyer can be found here.

Road Race For Animals is OTS’ biggest annual charity event. Proceeds benefit the Wildlife Medical Clinic, a non-profit veterinary student run clinic that accepts ill, injured, or orphaned wildlife, and A Pet’s Place, a student-run organization dedicated to caring for pets of women staying in area domestic abuse shelters. Last year, with the help of our wonderful local sponsors, we raised over $1,000 for these non-profits.

This year’s Road Race For Animals will be on Sunday, October 8th outside the parking lot of the Veterinary Medicine Basic Science Building at 2001 S. Lincoln Ave in Urbana. Race starts at 9 am and race day registration is from 7:30am to 8:30am. You can run with or without your furry friend!

Pre-registration packets may be picked up from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm on Saturday, October 7th, in the Basic Sciences Building (south entrance by the cafeteria), 2001 S. Lincoln Ave, Urbana, or from 7:30-8:30 am on race day (October 8th) at check-in.

A reception and brunch will follow the race with refreshments provided for all runners and animals. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 runners of each category. Additional prizes will be raffled to all participants after the race!
