Tails on Trails 2023 - Briggs Animal Adoption Center

It is almost time for our annual Tails on Trails event! Tails on Trails 5K & 10K fun walk/run will be held at the beautiful State Arboretum of Virginia, located at Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce, VA. This event benefits Spay Today, a program of the National Humane Education Society. Spay Today serves as a tangible example of spaying and neutering as part of the humane solution to ending the overpopulation of homeless animals. Providing an average of 4,000 reduced-cost spay/neuter procedures each year, Spay Today is a service that is supported through the generosity of people like you.

This year we want to be more eco-friendly and we ask that participants bring their refillable water bottles. We will have refill stations set up.

This USATF Certified 5K Course is a trail that runs through the beautiful State Arboretum of Virginia. VIEW THE MAP HERE.
