Welcome to the Inaugural Dog Days of Summer 5K!

paw printIt’s not necessary to bring a dog to come to this event and have a great time. Just bring a love of dogs and a PAWsitive attitude!

We would like to invite you to join us and many others for a fantastic morning of fun (and exercise) for you and your dog(s) at Green Lake Park. This new dog-friendly event is hosted by the Green Lake Chamber of Commerce, the Green Lake Community Center and Pro-Motion Events and will feature not just a scenic and flat 5K run & walk and free kids dashes but a host of other great activities for everyone.

Before and after the 5K main event there will be dozens of vendors in the park featuring a variety of things including pet products and services, human products and services, plenty of free food, drinks and samples (both human and canine), and much more.  There will also be an Adult Beverage area…the “Hound Pound for participants 21 and over (in human years) and will feature not only excellent craft beer from Fremont Brewing and mimosas, but also some of the great cocktails named after our furry friends throughout the years.

The Dog Days of Summer 5K is a benefit for the Green Lake Community Center as well as providing much needed support to the Emerald City Pet Rescue

Other activities on event morning will include:

*FREE Kids Dashes for children 10 years old and younger

*The finals of the Cutest Dog Contest

*Puppy Parade

*Dog & Human Costume Contest

*Dog & Owner Look Alike Contest

*Tail Wagging Contest

*Hound Pound

All registrations will include a custom designed Dog Days of Summer 5K T-shirt for you and a custom printed dog tag and bandana for your pet (one set per entry)

So come out and join us and let’s get this PAWty started. Woof!
