Directions: From Hwy. 502, take State Route 4 to White Rock, turn left onto Rover Blvd. (at the traffic light), turn left onto Meadow Lane, WRUMC is on the right at 580 Meadow Lane.

Race check-in and T-shirt and informational packet pick-up time will be from 8:00-8:40 a.m. on April 26, 2014 at WRUMC. Race day registration will have the entry fees as stated above, but T-shirts may need to be mailed. One informational packet will be provided per family if requested; all entrants will receive a T-shirt (colored shirts for adults, white for children) unless “none” is requested. Special goodies will be awarded for shelter and rescue dogs. 

Prizes will be awarded to first through third place winners for female and male runners with dogs in the 3.1 mile competitive run. Other awards and prizes will be given for dogs over 10 years and other (fun!) categories. Call 672-2089 with any questions.

All dogs must be on a 6-foot or shorter leash at all times. Please do not feed your dog for 90 minutes before or after the Dog Jog to help prevent bloat (twisting of stomach, a potentially fatal problem). Also, no bicycles, roller blades, or skateboards as many dogs react unpredictably around these methods of transportation. Wheelchairs and baby strollers are welcome. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult, although the adult does not have to register. You are not required to have a dog to participate.

Although we often have shelter dogs available to accompany runners and walkers, due to the fluctuating shelter population, we cannot guarantee that dogs will be available. Any shelter dogs that are available to participate in the race will be assigned on race day on a first come/first served basis.

Reduced-Fee Microchip Clinic: ACLA or Ridgeview vets will be implanting microchips for cats and dogs from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. for only $20; no preregistration needed.
