Event Description


Friday, August 26th was National Dog Day!  To help celebrate, we are hosting a Day of the Dog: Run, Walk or Jog 5K!  We invite you to complete a 5K anytime before December 31st, for, or with, your favorite four legged friend.  15% of every registration will be donated to Freedom Service Dogs of America.

Freedom Service Dogs is a nonprofit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by rescuing dogs and custom training them for individual client needs. Clients include children, veterans and active duty military, and other adults. Their disabilities include autism, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

By completing a virtual 5K and we’ll send you an awesome Day of the Dog Medal, plus an attached dog tag for your favorite four legged friend (medals are 3.5 inches).

What: This is a 5K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate the day of the dogs!

Dog Day Neck Ribbon

When: Complete your race any time before December 31st, 2016!

*We had to re-order medals due to the popularity of this race!  The next batch of medals will start shipping out on November 1st!  Sign up before this next batch sells out!

Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why:  Because this is our way of celebrating DOGS and to help raise funds for an amazing organization: Freedom Service Dogs of America.

Cost:  The price is $20 and that includes your medal and dog tag, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Freedom Service Dogs of America. (typically about $5).  *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
