Pups in the Park 5K
It's that time of year again,
and the dogs are loose
at Rock Creek Park in Dawsonville.
On September 23 you'll have a chance to Help the dogs out by participating in the 2nd annual 5K & Fun Run. Tech shirt, Overall & age group awards, dog friendly, music, fun, loads of great stuff will be waiting for you after you finish a super fast 5K course.
Don't want to run...bring a chair and watch.
Free entry when you raise $200 online through pledges.
Not ready for a 5K? Try the 0K! Yup…you read it right…a 0K. Bring a lawn chair and set up at the finish line and enjoy the show as all the runners head out and return all sweaty. We'll provide you with a race shirt and a number…no awards though.
Proceeds from the event go to the Dawson County Humane Society, a NO kill shelter dedicated to finding homes for the homeless dogs & cats in Dawson County.
We've put together a way for you to race for free, and help the humane society even more! Register for the Fundraising 5K, which has a $0.00 entry fee. Then just raise a minimum of $200, and your entry fee is covered.
We'll give you all the tools you need to make it work. When you arrive on race day, you check in like normal, and if you've met your minimum, then you're all set. If you're under $200, then you'll either take care of the difference, or pay the $25 entry fee.
Registration for the 5K is $25, and participants that are registered by 9/17 are guaranteed a race shirt in their size. Registrations after that will receive a shirt while supplies last. Race day registrations are welcome for $5 additional.
We may be racing in North Georgia but this course is Pretty flat & Super fast! So whether you're coming out to set a PR, or just coming to get your glow on, you're guaranteed to have a good time!
We have awards in the following catagories:
Awesome race shirts (guaranteed in your size if you register by 9/17, afterwards they're available while supplies last.
The fun doesn't end when you cross the finish line...the Humane society has loads of things lined up to make it a great day.
It's a Dog's Day at the park. You can bring your pooch to run the 5K or sit with you during the 0K. We'll be handing out awards to the fastest dogs too!
