We are excited to announce that the 8K is now approved for humans and human/dog duos to participate!
Please understand your dogs limitations. This race is just under 5 miles and we do not want you to run beyond your dog's abilities. The 8K is a run event but if your dog needs a break, please slow down! There will be multiple water stops along the way. If your dog is not used to this distance, please sign up for the 5K9 instead.
Please train responsibly and run only within the ability of your dog! We want all our human and canine participants to be safe and have fun!
So dogs are allowed in the 5K9 event running or walking?
Yes. Dogs can be walking, running, carried, rolled in a wagon, whatever works! Just know that in order to be eligible for fastest human/dog prizes, your dog must run/walk the entire distance and cannot be carried.
If you have already registered for the race and would like to switch between the 5K9 and the 8K, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before April 15th. Custom bibs are being ordered for this event and we want to make sure you have the correct race bib.
