Trails Tails & Ales: Run & Walk Events for Dogs & People Pages

Trails Tails & Ales is a dog-friendly 5K running event tentatively planned for November to support Chesapeake Search Dogs; their 100% volunteer efforts help to return our loved ones to us safely and find those we've lost. Throughout the year, pre-race events such as "Dash with Dash" training runs, hikes and social events will be held.

The main race event will also feature a unique component that allows teams to use our event to raise funds for their own causes. Called "Teams Over 10", any team participating for a cause of their own (a charity, a church, a community organization, pet rescue, etc.) can use our sponsorship tool to collect sponsorships for their own cause and win cash prizes for being either the largest team or the most successful fundraisers — or both! It's tough to put on a large event — Trails Tales and Ales wants everyone to have a venue to raise funds for what matters to them!
There are four ways to participate in Trails Tails & Ales:

  • Runner - Run the old-fashioned way - as a single human runner
  • Runner + Dog - Run as a Human/Dog Team
  • Walk - a one-mile Fun Walk is great for kids, for adults to enjoy the day, or walk dogs who don't like to run!
  • Volunteer... no great event happens without the amazing people who dedicate a day to making it happen!
Of course, the "Ales" part of our title suggests that we are looking for a fantastic microbrewery to sponsor the race's beer garden at the finish! The tag from a racer's bib will be good for one free beer!
