We strongly suggest that both the owner and dog train for this event if you already run.

Runners, start conditioning yourselves and your dog for at least a few weeks leading up to the race. You should inspect your dog’s pads for signs of injury (cuts and wear) and be careful in warmer weather (carry water, keep runs short, watch your dog for signs of stress). Talk to your veterinarian if you have any concerns.  We recommend jogging on trails or other locations where people run with their dogs, to acclimate your dog to running in a pack with distractions.

This is a trail run – no strollers will be permitted
