    • Date: Sunday, 05 May 2019
    • Time:

      8:30 am - 10K

      8:35 am - 5K

      8:10 am: 1-mile Trot with Spot, 10K Walk or Walk/run



Run this fun and fast 10K or 5K, or participate in the 1-mile Trot with Spot! The race is totally pet friendly but laid out such that serious runners can run without any problems. The race starts and finishes near the Brunswick Forest Fitness Center with inside bathrooms pre and post race. After the race we'll set up in a park setting beside a small lake with good snacks and drinks, anawards ceremony, prize drawings and sponsors there to show off their goods and services.


The race courses are flat and picturesque and include a loop through a park beside a small lake and dog park. The 10K run will start 5 minutes before the 5K so that 10K runners can get down the course first since very few if any pets do the 10K.

Bobble head trophies for winners. Great door prizes like this Stricks LP Gas "Grillin' Basket" show in the picture and gift certificates from local running stores. 


10K Walk or Walk/Run and the 1-mile Trop w/Spot starts at 8:10 am. This start time is designed for 10K runners who will be doing a run/walk or fast walk. You are expected to finish in less than two hours. Your results will be displayed in your age group. Early starters receive the same shirts and run the same course as the 8:30 am start athletes. You will earn it! 


NO DOG, NO PROBLEM!! Runners without dogs are welcome for sure in all races. The Hound Hustle 5K is well suited for runners and walkers with or without dogs, as is the 1-mile Trot with Spot. The 10K is primarily for runners but if your dog is fit and used to running 6.2 miles then they are certainly welcome to run with you. 


Shirts: All runners (10K, 5K, 1-mile) receive a Without Limits blend tech shirt!

BIG NOTE: shirts are gender specific with ladies shirts running one size small so select your size accordingly. Ladies, if you want a men's cut/size shirt just select the size you want that does not say "Female" beside it. 




10K awards go 3-deep in open and 2-deep in 5-year age groups through 65+. The 5K awards go 3-deep open and 2-deep in age groups through 70+. All kids participating in the 1-mile Trot with Spot will receive a small award while adults participating with pets will have the reward of sharing a fun experience with your best 4-legged friend!
