The Petco 5K9 Walk Run presented by Purina ProPlan is the national walk/run series open to both people and pets! We’re on a mission to promote healthy, fit lifestyles across the country while raising funds for animal welfare. All our events include a 5k, 1-mile plus health and fitness expo for people and pets.

The San Diego Petco 5K9 Walk Run Presented by Purina ProPlan will be held at the Wyland Center in the Del Mar Fairgrounds

The 5K is open to all walkers and runners, with or without their canine friends. We designate 5K9 for all those who choose to walk or run with their best canine friends. The start of the 5K or 5K9 is on the south side of the Del Mar Race track. The course moves east from the start onto Jimmy Durante Boulevard and loops around the race track, with a short out and back section and turnaround on Coast Highway 101.  Runners, walkers and dogs continue the route along the west side of the race track, and then turn in towards a finish line along the south edge of the race track.

Preregistration open now and the earlier you register the more 'cost effective' it is! So REGISTER EARLY!!!!!!!!!! On-site registration available starting from 6:00 – 7:30 am on race day but it will cost $45.00 for the 5K with or without a dog and $35.00 for the 1-mile with or without a dog.

    This was a fun event. Poppy loved the walking with her friends and keeping up with the crowd. It was pretty crowded inside the hall and hard to visit all of the booths with my dog in tow but we managed. I think it's getting better every year.

      I agree, since it's only their 2nd year they still have a few more things to 'tweak' till they get the set right. But all-in-all it was a great event and well organized compared to others I've been to. :0)

    Very nice walk again, so good to see everyone, dogs well organized, nice booths, maybe Petco could spread out the drinks and snacks to different tables so everybody isn't standing in line forever...we did not stand in line because we had to go to the vet booth...how nice to have a vet on hand to bandage up paws with booboos! And have to find how to thank the nice Petco volunteer who carried my pup out to the car to protect her other knee from blowing out since she would not use the bandaged foot. Looking forward to the next event. Oh and Chance, my unlikely unplanned foster (rhodesian mix!!!) was there in the chirpractic booth with his wonderful forever dad Dr. Paul Curda of Life Within Family Chiropractic in HIllcrest and also Dr. Paul Hodgson was there "Your Carlsbad Chiropractor"...I plan on trying them out for sure!

    • J. J.

      On no!!! I hope she gets better soon. I too saw the line for 'people food' and we just left. But this is only the 2nd year so improvements still need to be made. If your on Facebook post a comment on their page. I as well as a few others did in regards to the free photo. I told them that we left due to the line being so long! This year they added another booth which was nice. Seemed like EVERYONE had a good time. Good to see you, Tiki, Tori and Poppy! Catch ya'll on the next one! :0)

    I figured I'd wait till after ALL the holidays are over. Now that it has, I need to make this statement.

    This is to all who have RSVP'ed for this Meetup and have yet to register for the event. As of today, January 2nd, 2013 the same 7 people are still the only ones registered. As I am aware we all have different schedules and my not be able to commit to things till the 'last minute', January 13th is only 11 days away. It is because of this I am asking all of you who If you have not registered online for the Walk.Run.Wag 5K9 to register soon!

    I have posted several Meetups not only on this group page, but others as well and have had a number of "no shows". It is because of this that if anyone that has not registered online by January 9th I will have no choice but to manually remove you from this Meetup.

    • J. J.

      Granted don't let that stop you from attending but know that I need accurate attendance. It prevents me and others who have registered from having to wait for people that aren't even coming. So if you think you'll not be able to attend or can not afford the fee, believe me, I truly understand, but PLEASE change your RSVP to no. I as well as others would greatly appreciate it.

      Thanks J.J. :0)

      January 2, 2013

  • J. J.
