With the success of my first ever dog run with my new chihuahua Slider last month (Run With The Pack) I have decided to give it another whirl! We had such a ball that I am literally counting down the days (14) until I get to run another 5K with my fast and furry friend. If you two have ever had the desire to run in a race with your favorite four legged friend, you now can!
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 Defend Your Friend 5K loctated at the Scioto Audubon Metro Park in Columbus.
The race - which welcomes all spayed and neutered dogs on leashes with up-to-date shots - takes place Thursday, August 2, 2012 at 7:00 PM. The money from registration (as well as money race participants choose to contribute through fundraising) goes to the Capital Area Humane Society.
If you would like to run without a dog, you are more than welcome to run so you too can help the amazing cause. 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?!
