Donkey Sanctuary holding PACE for the Donkeys Sept. 24

PUSLINCH – Lace up your running shoes and join an exciting and meaningful event – the PACE for the Donkeys 5K Trail Run 2023.  

This annual event is set to take place on Sept. 24 at the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC), promising a day of exhilarating exercise, community engagement, and support for a great cause. 

PACE for the Donkeys 5K Trail Run is not just your average running event; it’s a unique opportunity to connect with nature and show support for the well-being of our equine friends. 

The event also aims to raise awareness about the importance of animal welfare, particularly donkeys.  

Key event highlights 

– scenic trail run: participants will run or walk through the trails and fields of the DSC, providing a chance to enjoy the beauty of nature; 

– community engagement: this event is a fantastic opportunity to come together as a community and support a cause that matters. Families, friends, and corporate groups are all invited to participate; 

– donkey welfare awareness: through PACE for the Donkeys 5K Trail Run, we aim to shed light on the often-overlooked issue of donkey welfare. Funds raised will directly support the care and protection of the donkeys, mules and hinnies who call the DSC home;

– fun-filled activity: the race is timed, but participants are encouraged to go at their own ‘pace’ just as donkeys do!  Aside from a fun run, participants can look forward to meeting some donkeys along the way; and  

– commemorative souvenirs: take home a unique event T-shirt and a commemorative medal to remember the day.
