What we're about

The old saying goes, if your dog is over-weight, you are not getting enough exercise. We are excited to meet with other local active, and not so active, dog owners who are interested in running (or walking) with their dog for general fitness or to lose a couple extra pounds (both you and your dog). Runners and walkers are welcome.

The goal of the group is too share dog friendly races in the area and to provide a forum so that dog owners can meet and train together.

Great run, great event, fantastic photography (free!) and sometimes perfectly delightful weather. Notes: -- For the 10k, you must be able to do a 12min mile. 5k is flexible for walking/running. -- For both races your dog must be on a no longer than 6ft fixed leash (not retractable), dogs/runners must start at the back of the pack (listen for instructions) and pick up poop. They've only just recently allowed dogs to do the 10k again, so let's keep it safe! -- It's a sunny course - so consider bringing water for your dog, or a collapsible bowl to use at the water stops -- the 10k starts @ 9, the 5k starts at 9.20.
