Healing Hoof-It 5K & 1-Mile Fun Walk

Join Smiling Goat Ranch, the Town of Carbondale and the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce for the annual Healing Hoof It Autism and PTSD 5K run/awareness walk and First Friday celebration on Friday, April 1, 2022.

New this year is a 5K run added to our already ever-popular 1-mile walk and animal parade. Packet pick-up and pre-registration begin at 4:00 PM at the Carbondale Recreation & Community Center. Race start is 5:30 PM. The streets will be closed for the 5K and our walking parade of therapy horses, goats, miniature horses and dogs will walk alongside families we serve, our community partners, and friends head to 4th Street Plaza for a post-walk celebration.

Proceeds from the Healing Hoof It and First Friday help support the mission of Smiling Goat Ranch. SGR brings the healing effects of horses, movement, nature, and supportive community to people affected by autism, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and related conditions – FREE TO ALL FAMILIES!

Registration is required for runners and walkers. Online registration is available through March 30 at this link. We are encouraging as many people as possible to pre-register.  For more race information click here
