Join us Saturday, June 15, 2019, for the Dog Days 5K and 2 Mile Walk at Festival South! This is a great event for the entire family that benefits Hub City Service Dogs, a nonprofit organization.
The 5K and Two-Mile routes will both start and finish at Kamper Park (107 S. 17th Ave. in Hattiesburg), at 7:30 a.m. This is a pup-friendly race, with water stations for both runners and canines along the route. All dogs are required to be conditioned and on a fixed leash. The route will take participants through the Avenues of Hattiesburg, a quaint neighborhood with a shaded path. Community volunteers, as well as clients of Hub City Service Dogs will be there to cheer you along the way! After the race, a post-race festival will be held at Kamper Park for both race participants and their pets.
The event will include breakfast from Topher's, food from local vendors, door prizes, entertainment by Charles Carter, and a Run-By Dog Pageant with local celebrity judges (to be identified during the run and walk by participant's BIB number). Categories for the pageant include "coolest dog, best dressed, best parent/pooch pair, super dog, best diva dog, and most handsome hound".
Each registrant will receive a 5th Anniversary Commemorative Beach Towel. T-Shirts will be available for purchase on https://runsignup.com/dog-days-5K and on event day.
