Wag Wag, Pant Pant…

Newtown park is one of the best parks 

we've ever seen for dogs!  

So to celebrate the dog days of summer, we're having a 5K just for Fido and you!  Come out to Newtown park for a dog friendly 5K.  You can bring your dog, or leave them at home.  We'll get the dogless started at 8:00 am sharp, and the dogs (accompanied by their humans) will start at 8:05 am.  Tech shirts & great awards to the top 3 overall M/F, top 3 overall master's M/F, and the top 3 in all the regular 5 year age groups.  Awesome course that's fast & scenic and all in the park.
