We encourage carpooling as much as possible for this event. There is a limited amount of parking inside Vasona Park and vehicle entry into the park is $6 per car.
Friendly, well-socialized dogs are welcome to run/walk with their family. Dogs must be on 6' leash and under human control at all times. No flexible leashes allowed. Always pick up after your dog; ensure dogs will greet properly, NO nose to nose; current vaccinations are required. Ask before greeting a service dog and please do not take offense if the owner says no, it means the dog is working for them at the moment.
Jogging strollers are permitted in this event. The entire race is on a paved surface, however, please be aware that much of the course is on a bike path and narrows significantly in some portions. Please be aware of other runners attempting to pass. Also, for safety reasons, we ask that those of you who wish to bring jogging strollers start the race in the back of the pack.
Operation Freedom Paws trains veterans and others with disabilities, leveraging the canine human relationship to become a service dog team, and restore their own independence.
Prizes will be given following the races for the categories:
Top Adult Male & Female finishers
Top Human + Dog Team finisher
Top Child Male & Female finishers. 12 years and under for Child category.
We'd like to extend a special THANK YOU to all our race partners who provided fantastic donations for the event!
