Spencer Fund which in partnership with the Bay Area Womens Center and the Humane Society of Bay County, provides boarding for the animals of domestic violence victims. We will be racing on a Sunday morning!
This race has 2 starting times. We understand that everyone can't or doesn't want to run with dogs. For those who prefer not to run the race alongside our canine friends, there is a 9:00AM "NO DOGS" start. For those bringing their furry friends AND for those who'd like to participate alongside them, there is a 9:30AM "WITH DOGS" start. You do not have to bring a pooch to participant in the "WITH DOGS" event!*
*PLEASE NOTE: To receive an award for the WITH DOGS race, participants MUST run with a dog. If youre competitive and would like to run for awards - and you dont have a dog - please sign up for the NO DOGS event.
