Head to Muttster Mash at light speed because this year it's taking on a Star Wars twist!

Muttster Mash, Animal Friends' annual one-mile dog walk and 5k race is returning for an out-of-this-world, Halloween-themed party for you and your pup. Our Jedi Knights, Cris Winter from WISH 99.7 FM and Ashley Dougherty from WTAE, will be heading off the festivities. You and your mutt will enjoy plenty of intergalactic activities and a few mind tricks.

This year, participants in the 5k will be officially timed by Pro Bike+Run Timing & Race Management. Awards will be presented to the top three finishers in each age group.

After you finish your run or walk, we’ll be counting on you and your pooch for the tricks, but don’t worry – our vendors and food trucks will provide plenty of treats. Enjoy entertainment from our musical guests, Josh and Jared from Spare Change as your pup indulges in fun activities like bobbing for hot dogs! Once your browsing is done and bellies are full, don't forget to participate in our pet parade and costume contest where you and your canine friend can compete for wookie-worthy prizes!

So, lace up your sneakers, leash up your pup and head to a galaxy not so far, far away at Edgebrook Field!
