About This Event
Muddy's Buddies 5K Walk/Run is a dog-friendly event near and dear to our hearts. This 5K is held in memory of our dear friend Muddy - a lovable chocolate lab who was Rayne's constant companion. If you've raced with us for many years, you likely remember seeing him at some of the races.
There are two divisions to this race ~ 2-legged (runner/walker with no dog) and 6-legged (runner/walker with one dog). The course is an out-and-back, so if you are bringing your best furry friend, please make sure that he/she is friendly as other dogs approach. For the safety of all involved, your dog must be up-to-date with his/her vaccinations to participate, although we will not be asking for proof. They must also be leashed at all times.
We've teamed up with Passion 4 Paws, a local dog rescue organization to bring you this event. Please consider making a donation to this worthy group when you register.
