  • Dog Mile - Individual Age group/open


Four Legged Running is devoted raising money and awareness for dogs and cats in need, while giving runners the inspiration to run for a cause. When you sign up for the Inaugural Half Marathon and 5k with Four Legged Running, $20 of every entry fee will go towards non-profit, no-kill animal rescues (full list of resuces you will support can be found on the Four Legged Running website).

The half marathon and 5k race is FOR the animals, NOT WITH the animals. You will not be able to race with your four legged running buddy at this event and that is for both you and your pets safety. Your Four Legged Running buddy may attend as a spectator on a leash or you may enter them in the Dog Mile. Please visit for more race day rules and information.

For participants who only entered the Dog Mile, you will start at 8:30am. Participants who register for the half marathon or 5k MUST leave their pet with a spectator until you complete your portion of the race. If you complete your race before 8:30am, you will wait to start the Dog Mile at 8:30am. All others may complete the Dog Mile immediately after finishing your Half Marathon or 5k. All Dog Mile participants must complete their mile by 11:00am. Your dog must remain on a leash at all times. You must bring your own bags to clean up after your dog.

There will Also be local animal rescues at the finish line with some of their adoptable pets. So come support rescues, race your best race, then meet the animals afterwards. Help them find their forever home.

Both Half Marathon and 5k distances will cost $65 in order to cover the $20 donation and race swag. There is an option for 5k entry that does NOT include race shirt for $45.

You must register before October 1st if you would like a shirt, no exceptions!

After October 1st, you may sign up for the half marathon and 5k MEDAL ONLY options.

Medal Only registration closes at 5am on November 18, 2018.

No race day registration onsite. You must register online by November 16, 2018.
