Ready, Set...Sniff! 5K Run and One-Mile Walk

The Ready, Set...Sniff! 5K Run and One-Mile Walk Run to save homeless animals at BARCS animal shelter. Run/walk as a team with a four-legged buddy, just as yourself or with your fundraising teammates. Whether you've run the race before, or you are new to our event, the participation format has changed a bit, to help us reach our $200,000 goal.

We have introduced a NEW peer-to-peer fundraising module, which we are asking all runners and walkers to take part in.

And, getting started is super easy! First, simply register to raise donations for the animals -- you can participate as an individual or start a team with your friends and family. When you raise your first $40, you're automatically part of our One-Mile Walk.

If you are a runner, looking to participate in the Ready, Set...SNIFF! 5K race, register with Charm City Run when race sign-up opens, and in your confirmation email you will find a link to set up your fundraising page!

We are so excited to have our race/walk integrated with fundraising this year. Every step that’s taken, every dollar that’s raised saves a life at BARCS.


One-Mile Walkers: Raise or donate at least $40 on your personal fundraising page and you are automatically signed-up to participate in the walk!

Runners: $40 per runner

Please click here for a printable registration form.



All race participants are encouraged to fundraise by setting up your own fundraising page before or at the conclusion of your registration process. You can run/walk and raise money as an individual or as a 'Pack' team!

New this year, we are asking all race and festival participants to set a goal of raising $100 for the animals at BARCS. (If in a 'Pack' team, $100 per person.) It's as easy as asking ten of your friends for $10 to sponsor your run!

Set Up Your Personal Fundraising Page 


Pre-Race: Friday, October 21 at Charm City Run in McHenry Row. Details TBD.

Race Day: Beginning at 8:00 a.m. in Patterson Park


Runs through beautiful Patterson Park, pavement course.


Medals will be given to the top three male and female and top three human/dog team.

Prize will be given to top individual fundraiser and the top pack team fundraiser


All participants will receive a race packet, a cotton Ready, Set...SNIFF! race shirt and special pet banadana.



Food, water and entertainment will be available for racers, pets and their families including pet costume contest, shopping at a variety of food and retail vendors, animal rescues, face painting and more. 


You must register one human per dog! No retractable leashes can be used during the event. Please no baby joggers, strollers, roller blades, skates, bikes, or headphones allowed on the race course. Your race number must be worn on your front and must be visible. DO NOT exchange or give your race number to another participant. There are no refunds of entry given or transfers of entry permitted for this event.


The most powerful wish in an animal shelter comes from such a tiny word ... "home." At BARCS, the search for a home is everything - for every neglected cat or dog given up by its family, every kitten and puppy born into an already overpopulated world - home is the ultimate hope. It is thanks to the generosity from the dedicated friends of BARCS who help thousands of abandoned animals leave as cherished pets for their forever homes each year.

There are so many suffering, neglected and abandoned pets in Baltimore that still need our help. BARCS strives to save all healthy and treatable animals, but we can only accomplish this goal with your help. Every dollar raised from the Ready, Set, Sniff 5K goes directly toward the animals in our care.
