The race will take place on October 8, 2016 and it begins at 9:00 a.m, sign-in and day-of registration begins at 8. Participants are encouraged to bring their dogs with them so long as they are up to date on their shots! There are two options for participants: there is a 1 mile walk and a 5k run.
*Dogs must be on leashes and must be wearing their tags at the race.*
The top 2 winners of each event will win a gift card! There will also be a dog costume contest and a human costume contest! There will also be a basket of dog toys and treats and some prizes from local businesses to be raffled off after the race! We will have music during and after the event, yard games (cornhole, ladderball, volleyball, etc.), and food for all participants at the end of the race! If you would like to sit, please bring your own picnic blankets or chairs! We would love for participants to hang out and have fun with us after the race!
The cost to register online is $25 and this includes the race t-shirt! The t-shirt design is below! The cost to register the day of the race is $30. Note- If you register the day of the event, your race t-shirt is not guaranteed as we will only order a certain amount of extra shirts!
