Strollers & Dogs Welcome!
This event is stroller and dog friendly (just as long as your pooch is well-behaved, leashed, and under your control at all times). Eukanuba will provide a special "pet pit stop" along the race course to provide dogs with drinking water. At the finish line, you and your dog can stop by the Eukanbua booth to learn more about Eukanba Excel and take home a commemorative photo of both of you on the cover of Runner's World magazine. Dogs and their runners will also have their own special start group.
Exciting Post-Race Party
After the race, stick around for a huge post-race party on the lawn of Rhodes Hall featuring delicious barbecue sandwiches from LowCountry Barbecue, refreshing drinks and great music. All participants will receive a t-shirt and goodie bag sponsored by Big Peach Running Co. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male/female finishers, top 3 male/female finishers in each age group, first participant with a stroller and first dog.
