Following the children’s races, the highly anticipated Doggie Dash begins at approximately 11:15 a.m., inviting leashed and vaccinated dogs aged six months and older, along with their handlers aged 12 and over, to participate in two exciting courses. The “Doggie Bag” provided to participants includes a dog’s race bib and bandana. When the race is done, competitors earn a Finisher dog tag, making every furry friend feel like a champion. Safety is paramount, and all dogs are required to be socialized and comfortable around crowds and other dogs, ensuring a stress-free and enjoyable experience for all. Register online at
