The cost to participate with a canine is free; one canine per participant only. Canine registration is included in the cost of registration (one canine per participant only).

Are strollers permitted in the 5K race?

Since this is a fun run, all are invited to participate- strollers included. As there will be dogs and leashes involved in the event, we ask that strollers start in the back of the pack, and remain safely on the sidewalks at all times throughout the route.
