K-9 Rex, our inspiration for this race is a one-year-old black Labrador Therapy dog. K-9 Rex goes to 9 schools bringing smiles and comfort to the students. This race will help Back The Blue K-9 Force fund more Therapy K-9s and help with safety gear and medical needs. Money raised will also help apprehension, explosives, narcotics, and electronics detection K-9s.
At Dove Valley Regional Park there is space for over 350 vendors, food trucks, K-9 Unit departments, bounce houses, face painters and balloon artists. There will be an all-day competitive law enforcement softball tournament.
Three registration events are available. The Run is from 8 am to 9:30 am. The Walk (bring your dogs - 6 feet leashes are required, no retractable leashes please) begins at 9:30 am and is over at 11 am. Virtual is from 7 am to 4 pm. All are $45 for early registration.
There will be several law enforcement K-9s at RexRun. Please respect their space. Always ask if you can pet them. Don't allow your kids to run-up to the K-9s or have your dogs close. You are responsible for your children and pets.
Pet rescues will be at the event too. Come out and maybe find your new walk/run buddy.
