Run, walk or jog during the weekend of March 19-21, 2021 in the 19th Annual Dog Jog and 5K Run presented by Holiday Barn Pet Resorts, benefiting the Richmond SPCA!


To do our part to help keep everyone safe, this beloved family- and pet-friendly event will look a little different this year. But we promise it'll still be full of four-legged fun and your participation will help save the lives of pets in need!

Your registration will include:

  • The opportunity to run, walk or jog a one-mile Dog Jog and/or a 5K with (or without!) your dog on our pre-mapped official courses at Deep Run Park or wherever you like during the weekend of March 19-21, 2021
  • Access to GPS tracking, progress alerts and official race timing through the RaceJoy app to help lead you on your self-guided 5K and/or Dog Jog
  • A customizable fundraising webpage of your own to help raise lifesaving donations to the Richmond SPCA (and win amazing fundraising prizes!)

The first 500 registered participants will receive:

  • A Dog Jog and 5K Run T-shirt
  • A Dog Jog and 5K Run medal for you and your pet - NEW!
  • A Dog Jog and 5K Run race bib

We hope you'll join us to run, walk or jog with your dog by your side on our official Dog Jog and 5K Run courses at Deep Run Park – or on your favorite trail, in your neighborhood or wherever you like!
