Start planning to run the 3rd annual "Race to the Finish 5K" with a new twist. It is now a 5K-9. That's right, this race is for you and your dog. As in previous years, the entire 5K-9 will be run on our church property with a mix of trails and pavement. No cars to dodge, and no intersections to run through. Since this course is "unique" you should register with a friend, or two, to experience the course together.
There will be people, and K9, water stops on the trail, puppy treats at the end of the course, along with other dog friendly services from the community. This course is sure to bring a smile to your face as you will run past many inspiring signs.

We will also have a KIDS 1 MILE FUN RUN for kids 11 and under. They can't run with a dog, but they can still come out and run like Underdog the Wonderdog. The 1 Mile Fun Run is run entirely on our internal church property on paved roads.

Funds raised from this event will go to the work of Missionary Matt Mattos with World Nations. “Together we are fighting hunger and poverty through sustainable agriculture and community development.” www.worldnationsuse.org

Feel free to run or walk this course, but bring a change of shoes to wear home. Your feet will get a little wet.

We look forward to seeing you on September 8th.

Please Note

  • No strollers on the course
  • Limit 1 dog per person
  • Use non-retractable leashes less than 6 feet long
  • Dog play area will be available after the race
  • Muzzles recommended, and please leave aggressive dogs at home
  • No dogs in heat
  • Dogs must be vaccinated

Runners are not required to have a dog to participate.
Registration fee includes t-shirt and goodie bag.
Dog bandanas are $5, please check that block when you register if you are bringing your dog.
