We’ve opened up our 10K race to our runners’ canine companions; in other words, your doggo is also welcome to run this race distance with you!

Of course, to keep everyone happy and healthy, we had to put in place a few rules in order to guarantee everybody a race experience as great as it can be. To help us ensure safety on the course, we kindly ask that you follow these three simple rules:

  1. Please consider how your dog interacts with other people and dogs. If you’re not 100% sure about how your dog will react to your fellow runners and other dogs, please leave them at home and enjoy a run with them another time. Please note that you’re expected to stay toward the end of the pack and to clean up after your pet.
  2. If your pup is coming with you, please keep their leash as short as possible AT ALL TIMES, not just when you see or run with other participants.
  3. Your doggo needs to stay leashed during the whole event while on-site.

We will have doggy aid stations at the finish line with plenty of water for the brave, victorious doggos! Race registration for your four-legged friend(s) is free; they can just show up with you and run. Please note that at this time, the race is open only to dogs.
