2013 is the 5th year for this annual running event which was created in memory of Chris Cowden, a long-time Guthrie resident and animal rights advocate, who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident on May 17, 2008. In the first three years of this event "The See Spot Run" has collectively welcomed over 2,000 runners from all over the State of Oklahoma and raised over $20,000 for the Free to Live Animal Sanctuary. In memory of his passion for the rescue and fair treatment of all animals, in addition to his zeal for running and athletics, the Cowden Family and friends created the "The See Spot Run" to honor Chris' animal advocate efforts and legacy. Through this annual sporting event, they have continued to promote in Chris' memory an increased awareness of animal rights and the lasting support of non-profit animal organizations such as Free to Live. “The See Spot Run” will offer all participants the opportunity to compete in either the 5K and 10K or Kids Fun Run event. Walkers and runners are welcome and can register directly at www.theseespotrun.com or by email at
