_ Hound Hustle 10K, 5K & 1-mile Trot with Spot presented by Brunswick Forest Veterinary Hospital:
The race takes place on flat and fast courses in the beautiful Brunswick Forest community. The whole event is pet friendly but is also set up with the 10K starting five minutes before the 5K so that serious 10K runners get down the course without having any issues with dogs. The 1-mile Trot with Spot is primarily for pets and people to participate together. The dogs love being in a group with their fellow pooches and the finish line scene is memorable for everyone. The 5K has well behaved pooches who start near the back of the pack before heading out on the picturesque out-and-back route so if your dog is ready to go 3.1 miles then get in there!
NO DOG, NO PROBLEM!! With the 10K starting 5 minutes before the 5K runners without pets will still get to run a serious 10K if that's your thing. The awards are custom mugs and 3-deep winners also get a nice trophy.
The race is stroller and walker friendly!
10K Early Start: For walkers or run/walkers doing greater than a 1:20 10K there is an early start (20) minutes before the regular 10K start. This allows walkers and run/walkers to participate and finish about the same time as most other runners. Early starters get the same shirts and cover the same course as everyone else. Your results will be displayed in your age group, Note that the 1-mile Trot with Spot "takes off" with the 10K early start so runners get to cheer on the early starters and see the owners and pooches finish the 1 mile event - fun for everyone!
Blend tech shirts or soft cotton shirts that are great for running or sporting aound town to show off to your friends!
