Description

Spring is almost here and what better way to celebrate than with a run with your pup!  We're going to have a pup-tastic time doing a 5K run benefitting the Gwinnett Humane Society!  Come run your tails off with us in Downtown Sugar Hill on an AJCPTRR Certified Course.  We're  getting some great race shirts, and we'll have some amazing awards to the top 3 M/F, top 3 master's M/F,  and the top 3 in each of the normal 5 year age groups.  We'll even award our three Fastest Dogs (running with their humans, of course!).

Rushing Trading Company will provide all runners with a FREE beverage after running their tails off!  Racers 21+ have the option of one of their craft beers (ID is required).  Plus, they will have hot chocolate (or iced coffee/tea if it's a warmer day) for younger runners or those who prefer a non-alcoholic beverage. Racers just need to bring their race bib to Rushing Trading Company's booth on the Promenade for their free beverage. They will also have breakfast menu items for purchase inside or at their outside table service after the race too.

Runners, walkers, strollers, all dogs welcomed!
