Rabbit Fun Run 2019
Saturday March 30th 2019 8:00 am – 10:00 am
Come join us on March 30, 2019 for the second annual Rabbit Fun Run benefiting the House Rabbit Resource Network in Austin, Texas. Our first fun run was such a success that we have decided to make this an annual event. This is a fun run so feel free to run, sprint, walk, or just hang out under the pavilion at Lake Pflugerville. In addition to the fun run we will have music, sponsors to meet, information on the organization about adopting, volunteering, donating, and plenty more.
The early entry fee is $35 for those ages 13+ and will include a unique run tee. All ages are welcome and the loop distance is about 2.7 miles. All net proceeds from the run will go directly to help the House Rabbit Resource Network's efforts in improving the lives of domestic rabbits.
ONLINE TICKET SALES FOR PARTICIPANTS WILL END ON FRIDAY, MARCH 29 AT 8:00PM CDT. ENTRIES AND SHIRTS CAN STILL BE PURCHASED IN PERSON ON THE DAY OF THE RUN (SATURDAY, MARCH 30) STARTING AT 7:00AM THOUGH SHIRT AVAILABILITY MAY BE LIMITED. VIRTUAL ENTRIES CAN CONTINUE TO BE PURCHASED ONLINE THROUGH THE MORNING OF SATURDAY, MARCH 30. THANK YOU.

What is the House Rabbit Resource Network?
The House Rabbit Resource Network is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the lives of domestic rabbits by:
- Educating people about caring for companion rabbits as house pets
- Facilitating rabbit rescues and adoptions
- Promoting rabbit advocacy and welfare
We are also a network of house-rabbit enthusiasts in Austin, Texas who help each other with information, support, outreach and camaraderie. “Your friends may tire of your endless rabbit tales, but we won’t!”
- Responsible rabbit caretaking. Rabbits are intelligent, social companion animals that require mental stimulation, exercise and social interaction.
- Housing rabbits indoors.
- Spaying and neutering to promote a long, healthy and happy life for your rabbit. In addition, altering helps reduce overpopulation and the needless suffering and many deaths that result from too few homes.
We find rabbits to be rewarding, engaging companions. We want others to share the joys and avoid the common pitfalls of sharing life with a house rabbit.
