Dogtown Doggy Dash

September 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Grab your pup and lace up your shoes for the first annual Dogtown Doggy Dash 5k on Sunday, September 17th!

Join us for a one-of-a-kind race experience where four-legged friends are just as welcome as their human counterparts. This exciting event will take place in the heart of Dogtown, starting and ending at Clayton/Tamm, where local businesses will share in the festivities.

As a participant, you and your dog will receive some amazing goodies. Your human companion will receive a stylish race t-shirt, ensuring you look your best as you dash through the rolling hills of Dogtown & Forest Park. And for your furry friend, we have a special treat—an exclusive Doggy Dash bandana that will make them the envy of the neighborhood.

But the perks don’t end there! Every finisher—both human and canine—will be awarded a shiny finisher medal as a token of their accomplishment. At our photo booth, your canine companion will have the opportunity to have their very own personalized finisher photo, capturing the essence of their triumph.

And at the start/finish area, get ready for a post-race celebration like no other. We’ll have a variety of fun activities, including interactive games, dog-friendly vendors, and much more! After crossing the finish line, join us for some well-deserved outdoor beers, delicious food, and live music on the street. Take a moment to soak in the camaraderie and celebrate your achievement with fellow runners and dog lovers alike.

So mark your calendars for Sunday, September 17th, and get ready to dash through Dogtown with your furry companion by your side. Register today and secure your spot in this unforgettable event!


The first three winners in both male and female categories (humans and canines) will receive awards. Winners will be presented after the race concludes.
