The LAPS “Furry Tails Foot Race” is a FUNdraiser to help Langley’s stray, lost and unwanted dogs and cats.  Put your best foot forward as you challenge yourself and other “heroes for animals” on the beautiful trails at Derby Reach Regional Park!

With spring birds singing in the trees and the gentle flow of the Fraser lapping at the shoreline, there is no better way to get out and get moving.  The route will be well marked with plenty of friendly volunteers keeping you hydrated and on course. After your run (or walk), please hang out with us and enjoy yummy treats. After all, the best part about running is the post race!
