Sat June 13, 2020 Hattiesburg, MS 39401 US Directions
Cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic

We are sad to have to make the decision to cancel the 2020 Dog Days 5k and 2 Mile Walk at FestivalSouth.  However, it is the best thing to do under the circumstances.  We hope to do some event once the quarantine restrictions are lifted and we are able to meet as large groups again.  Keep a eye on our facebook page @dogdays5k for updates and information.  

Here Are Your Options:

Many of you have very generously asked to donate your registration fee as a  way to support our nonprofit in the wake of this substantial financial hit.  If you would like to donate your registration fee, please select this option.  All donation receipts for tax-deductible donations will be sent by April 30, 2020.   We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
