Bar K is a unique and joyful destination combining a 2-acre fully staffed dog park with a modern bar, restaurant and coffeehouse.  On April 20, we are hosting the Bar K 5K & Afterparty!  This is a dog-friendly 5K for competitive runners, weekend warriors, novices, walkers and everyone in between. If you love running with your dog, the Bar K 5K is a 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.  And we'll have awards for the Top 3 in the following categories:


Overall with Dog

Under 20 M & F

20-29 M & F

30-39 M & F

40-49 M &F

50-59 M & F

60 & Up M & F

Plus top Pipsqueak (fastest dog under 25lbs) and Clydesdale (fastest dog over 80lbs)!!

All entrants can bring their dogs into Bar K for free, and you'll get one ticket for the free draft beer of your choice at the Afterparty!

Participation is limited to the first 250 entrants, so sign up now! BAR K MEMBERS -- EMAIL US AT WAG@BARKDOGBAR.COM FOR YOUR DISCOUNT CODE!

Review On:
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!
