The Denham Springs High School cross country and track and field teams are hosting the second-annual Dog Days of Summer 5k and 1-mile run on Saturday, August 6, 2022. The race will go along historic River Road in Denham Springs and offers runners a beautiful course with lots of shade. We hope to provide a worthwhile run for everyone. All proceeds beyond the administrative costs of the event will be donated to the Denham Springs High School cross country and track and field programs. The race will be officially timed and managed by Cajun Timing. All participants will receive a t-shirt (if registered by Saturday, July 30) and all 5k finishers will receive a custom medal. T-shirts will be available for those who register after Saturday, July 30, while supplies last. We have a maximum of 300 spots available in the 5k race.
