Bar K 5K Race Description

THE 2020 BAR K 5K & AFTERPARTY W/SPECIAL GUESTS DION LEONARD AND GOBI

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH 8 A.M. START

We are super excited to announce that ultra-marathoner Dion Leonard and his dog Gobi will be joining us for the Bar K 5K this year!

In case you don't know Gobi's incredible story, she met Dion during the 155-mile, 2016 Gobi Desert Run. The stray border terrier mix decided to follow Dion across 77 miles of hostile terrain. Dion wanted to take his new friend back home to Scotland, but Gobi went missing before she could clear the quarantine process. So Dion flew back to China, where he eventually found Gobi and brought her home. The amazing story went viral and was documented in Dion's book "Finding Gobi."

The Bar K 5K is the premiere dog-friendly 5K in the country, designed for competitive runners, weekend warriors, novices, walkers and everyone in between. If you love running with your dog, the Bar K 5K is the one must-do event on your race calendar!!

The course is a beautiful loop along the Riverfront Heritage Trail through Berkley Riverfront Park, under the Bond Bridge, Heart of America Bridge and the historic AS&B railroad bridge, with only one street crossing along the entire course.  You are encouraged to run with your dog -- or, if your pup's not a runner, leave him or her in our fully staffed dog park while you race! And if you don't have a dog, come race with us anyway!

All entrants will receive a custom finisher's prize at the finish line.  Your race entry free gets you and your dog free entry into Bar K for the Afterparty, as well as a drink ticket good for one free domestic draft beer.  And we'll have awards for the Top 3 in the following categories:

Overall M & F

Overall with Dog

Under 20 M & F

Great 5k to run with Doggie

This was our first 5k we ran together (Bae & I). I had never ran the Riverfront area either. Very well supported, organized and great place to have a race (flat).

Loved it!

This was such a fun race! My dogs clearly loved the energy and excitement of it and ran much harder than usual. Plus, the course is pretty flat, which is always nice!
