I enjoyed how much fun it was to run with your dog. People were responsible and all the dogs and runners were good sports and friendly!

Great race for a great cause!

This is our second year to run the race & we love it! The weather & the course are perfect. The location- the L.L. Bean campus- is great. It's convenient & also just a very pleasant place to hang out. We also love watching the DockDogs & the other activities going on in conjunction with the race. We are making this an annual tradition! :)

Fun race through downtown Freeport. Awesome to see so many people running with their dogs, and fun dog themed event to follow. Totally worth doing again!

great cause

I always look forward to this event which focuses funds for local animal shelters. They do a nice job with festivities after and LL Bean is a nice area to visit and look around. This years race seemed a bit rushed at the beginning with start announcements. Good snacks and beverages after the race was a nice treat.
