The 2nd annual K-9k Dog-Friendly Trail Run and Family Fun Dog Walk encourages competitors to run or walk with their dogs on a new-for-2014 trail course design from Wild Trails on the grounds of the McKamey Center and neighboring parks. The event is crafted so that you can take on whatever level of challenging outdoor activity you and your canine enjoy. The 9k is a competitive, timed, trail run; dogs must be off-leash and should be under voice and sight control in order to compete. Runners may choose to run without a canine companion, as well. If you are not a competitive runner but enjoy spending time outdoors with your dog, the 2-mile Family Fun Dog Walk is the perfect way for you and your dog to join in all the fun and excitement of the event at the pace you prefer. Take a stroll or a jog on the trail with your companion – dogs must be leashed for the Family Fun Dog Walk.
Your participation helps lost, abandoned and abused animals in the city of Chattanooga. Funding helps our animals with medication, medical care and food. Walk as an individual with your dog, or put a team of people and dogs together! The whole team can help raise additional funds for the animals. Ask your family, friends, co-workers and local vendors to pledge toward you or your team. Kids 12 and under participating in the Family Fun Dog Walk are FREE!
