Running with Dogs – 5K9 Walk/Run Supports TART Trails


What’s better on a Saturday morning than taking a walk or run with your favorite dog buddy? Saturday, May 14th at 9 am is the date for the 7th Annual Tails for Trails. This 5K fun run/walk on the scenic Vasa Pathway is a unique opportunity to mingle with other dog owners and experience the trails with your canine friends. You can also choose to do a 3K route if you wish. No need to worry about running. You can take a leisurely stroll if you and your dog choose.

Registration is $20 per person and $40 for families through May 6th or $25 per person and $50 for families after May 6th. You can sign up at the TART website here.

Dogs receive a goodie bag with D.O.G. Bakery treats and promotional dog items including a bandana for every dog. Free professional photos will be available to download after the run for free. There will be pet friendly prizes for the top three adult finishers and also for the top kid finisher (10 and under). Also at the event will be agility equipment for dogs to demo and local groups AC PAW and Cherryland Humane Society will bring adoptable dogs to meet. Cherryland is asking everyone to bring gently used shoes and boots of any size or kind to donate to their “Shoes for Shelters” Program. Ten pairs will earn you a FREE Cherryland Pet Product Discount Card.

The family-oriented event for runners and walkers of all fitness levels is sponsored by Bay Area Pet Hospital, Northwood Animal Hospital, Great Lakes Pet Memorial & Crematory, D.O.G. Bakery, Woofers on the Run and Pets & Peeps Photography.
