In honor of The Seeing Eye Doggy Dash's 5th anniversary, we have added a USATF certified 5k course with awards for top finishers, and all walk and 5k pre-registrants get a free t-shirt! This is a USATF sanctioned event. Come celebrate Blindness Awareness month this October with our 5k run and walk (t-shirts available to event day registrants while supplies last). We will also offer the Doggy Pageant presented by Nobivac with 6 categories which includes a costume contest. We'll have a 50/50 cash raffle and gift basket raffles, free face painter and caricature artist, and a DJ to provide entertainment. You may run or walk as an individual, or invite your friends, family or colleagues to participate by creating a Doggy Dash team. Turn your participation into a fundraiser and be eligible for prizes! We also need volunteers so check out the volunteer tab on the left menu.
