Fur-Free Downtown Dash 2011,
Saturday, November 26th, 2pm SHARP! $5 Entry Fee

(Page Last Updated Nov 25/2011.)

The Fur-Free Downtown Dash is a fun, activist event inspired by scavenger hunts, orienteering and alley-cat races (fun point-to-point urban races on bicycles, often requiring a task to be performed at each check-point.) This event was inspired by participants of our 2011 Save-A-Turkey Trot who were eager to do more active events!

This 'race' will begin and conclude at Green Cuisine in Market Square, where participants will be given instructions and their event sheet (listing locations, tasks, etc). There will be a 1 hour time limit, but shouldn't take that long even for casual walkers, and will remain in the downtown area.

The theme of the event is fur, and tasks will be related to this. It's a good-natured event, and we're not asking anyone to throw paint or anything like that, but there are some elements of peaceful activism that will be involved!

We recommend you bring along:

Some rules include:

There will be prizes, and cake for all at the conclusion of the event. =)

All will be explained at the event, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. See you there!
