The course will be professionally measured and timed by Running Ventures. All proceeds raised by this event will go to Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs in high kill shelters. We are a small, volunteer run organization.
Guidelines for Our 4 Legged Participants:
- All dogs must be on a leash (no retractable leashes). - All dogs should be current with vaccinations. - Please pick up your dog’s waste. Warm up your dog beforehand to avoid dealing with this during the event. - If you enter a younger dog please be responsible; take your time, stop, walk, or carry. Dogs younger than one year have not fully developed their bones and joints and racing or over exerting your youngster may cause permanent damage or later issues.
