Running has gone to the Dogs! Be sure to join us on Saturday May 11th at the Confederation 5K where we are launching our first ever dog run/walk.
For all you traditionalists the 14th annual 5K and 1K will be run as usual on 2 legs but we have added a 4 legged component for all of you who train with your pet. It’s really not fair that they only get to go on training runs, its time they get rewarded for their service.
The SPCA will be on hand and we encourage you all to pledge a runner, dog or both in order to raise funds for the great service they provide to the community.
Member’s of the Hamilton Police K9 unit will also be on hand.
RJ’s rolling smokehouse will once again be providing the best lunch in the race business free to all registered participants and there will be some snacks for your best friends as well.
Events will kick off with the 1K at 9:30 and all children 12 and under will receive a free t-shirt. The 5K will go in 2 waves starting at 10:00 am. Separate awards medals will be presented for each event and all the dogs will receive a bone shaped collar medal.
All 5K participants will recive a free technical t-shirt if you are registered before Sunday night at midnight.
Its something new, it’s going to be fun, I hope to see you all there.
