5K/2K Doggy Dash
Saturday, October 15th – 5:00pm
Pre-Register here!
Enjoy a sunset run at Chesapeake City Park where you can run with your canine companion!
If a 5K is too much for you or your four-legged companion, you can run or walk in the 2K Puppy Trot.  We also welcome virtual runners if you’d like to sit back and raise funds for animals in need.  You can enter the 5K/2K with or without a dog, in memory of a beloved pet, or in honor of your cat.
Registration fee includes after-race snack, water, and one beer ticket for a nice cold craft beer from Big Ugly Brewing Company!  After-party includes great food from Karnage Asada food truck, Pelican Sno Balls, and live music by the Red Stapler Duo, and the awards ceremony!
