Ever wanted to run in a race with your favorite four legged friend? It's likely you already do take your dog on a run with you every now and then so that the both of you can get your exercise in. Or, you may just take your pup to the park where you can allow him to frolic freely without a leash. Either way, you know your companion needs adequate amounts of fresh air and canine cardio. And now, you can let your dog join you on a 5K run or 1 mile fun run with the sixth annual Run With The Pack 5K loctated at the Scioto Audobon Metro Park in Columbus.
The race - which welcomes all spayed and neutered dogs on leashes with up-to-date shots - takes place Saturday, June 23, 2012 at 8:30 AM. Pre-registration costs $25 for no time chip and $30 with a time chip, while registration on the day of the race is $35. The money from registration (as well as money race participants choose to contribute through fundraising) goes to the Pets Without Parents Animal Shelter in Clintonville.
I will be running with my new chihuahua Slider and hope to see you there! If you would like to run without a dog, you are more than welcome to run so you too can help the amazing cause, Pets Without Parents. Vendors will be present with all sorts of goodies for you and your pet. And, you will be able to let your pet socialize and make friends! Who knows, maybe you will too?!
