Spring is almost here and what better way to celebrate than with a run with your pup!  We're going to have a pup-tastic time doing a 5K run benefitting the Gwinnett Humane Society!  Come run your tails off with us in Downtown Sugar Hill on an AJCPTRR Certified Course. 

We're  getting some great race shirts, and we'll have some amazing awards to the top 3 M/F, top 3 master's M/F,  and the top 3 in each of the normal 5 year age groups.  We'll even award our three Fastest Dogs (running with their humans, of course!).

Runners, walkers, strollers, all dogs welcomed!
