For far too long, canine athletes have faithfully trained alongside their human counterparts, only to be left on the sidelines on race day. No longer! The 2014 Animal Medical Center Doggy Dash gives man (or woman) and best friend the chance to compete in tandem over a five-mile run course. Loyal pups and their loving owners are invited to participate!
Please note the 2014 Animal Medical Center Doggy Dash is officially sold out. If you're registered, we look forward to seeing you at the start line. If you didn't get the chance to sign up, please join us to cheer on our participants!
