Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION: What does each event mean?

ANSWER: Dog Days of Summer Miles Challenge = For adults and young adults 13 and older. Puppy Miles Challenge = For kids 12 and under. Four-Legged Friends Miles Challenge = For dogs!


QUESTION: If I sign up multiple members of my family, do we have to do all our miles together?

ANSWER: No, you all would have your own race results and there are different leader boards set up for each challenge. So, you will enter mileage separately for each member of the family. 


QUESTION: How do I sign up my dog?

ANSWER: When signing up your dog, select "Adult, 18+" and set their birthday as 99 years old! This way their name can be displayed instead of first initials like minors are.


Please stay safe throughout the hot summer months! Remember that this challenge is JUST FOR FUN and not a reason to push yourself or others in unsafe conditions; especially in regard to children and animals! Use caution when exercising in the heat & humidity, stay indoors if needed and avoid hot pavement with animals. ALWAYS follow weather safety guidelines!
