Do you allow dogs to run in the 5k or 10k

It is ok to run with your dog. We just ask that you line up in the back for the safety of the other runners and keep the dogs on a short leash

Can I run/walk with a stroller

Yes, strollers are allowed in the run we just ask that you line up in the back for the safety of the runners.
