About this event

In celebration of National Pet Month, Montgomery Parks is excited to announce Tails on the Trails Fun Run and Walk, a free event designed to include your four-legged family members!

Join us at the Robert C. McDonell Campground at Cabin John Regional Park, where you will find a beautiful natural surface path that is about one mile long. Check-in will take place at the entrance to the campground. There your dog will be able to go through an agility course, pose for pictures, and sniff to their heart’s desire within the campground.

Parking is available by the check-in area. Overflow parking available at the Group Picnic Area on Tuckerman Lane or along the gravel path leading to the campground. Keep an eye out for volunteers and signage when parking!

The race begins at 9 am and ends at 12 pm. Registration is required, and guests may sign up for a specific start time.
