This is one race which is happy to say "they have gone to the dogs." The featured 5K, which begins at 10 am, is followed by a 1-mile walk for participants and their dogs.

Over 150 runners and walkers registered for the event last year with Aaron Kleinberg capturing the win in 1857. Molly Lohry won the women’s title in 20:40.  The course record of 16:58 is held by Michael Dwonoh set in 2013.  Kim Cary holds the women’s course mark of 19:57 set in 2016.

The race starts and finishes at the Wake Forest College Birth Place located on 450 North Main Street in Wake Forest.
