Grab your pooch (or leave them at home if they don't like to run), and join us at Gerald Matthews Complex Loop in Hampton for a dog friendly 5K. We'll have loads of great swag (race shirts for humans & bandanas for dogs), as well custom awards for the Overall winners, Overall Master's winners, and the Top three in all the usual 5 year age groups. Although we love our furry felines, we highly recommend cats sit this event out!
