Join us for our 6th Doggie Dash – the Howl-i-day Doggie Dash 5K! Run (or walk) with your pup (or without) to help LA Frontrunners raise funds for PAWS/LA & Angel City Pit Bulls! There will be two separate 5Ks – one for humans only and one for pups with their human! All the details are below. Pets are such a vital part of so many of our lives, so come race your heart out or take a stroll, and help us support two organizations whose missions are to care for pets in need and to make sure those who are struggling are able to care for and have their pets in their lives.
Location & Date
The Howl-i-day Doggie Dash 5K takes place on Sunday, December 9th, in Griffith Park. The humans only 5K starts at 7:30 and the pups and human 5K starts at 8:30. The start/finish area is the Crystal Springs Picnic Area in Griffith Park (same location as years past for returnees). The 5K is one loop around the golf course and is trail/packed dirt and flat.
Course & Race Info
The start/finish area for Howl-i-day Doggie Dash 5K is the Crystal Springs Picnic Area in Griffith Park (behind the Griffith Park Ranger Station/baseball fields). The 5K is one loop around the golf course. If this is your first 5K, 5 kilometers = 3.1 miles. The path is packed dirt and flat.
7:30 AM – Humans Only 5K: The first 5K is for two footers only – no pups allowed. If you don’t have a dog, or your partner/spouse/child won the coin flip to race with your dog at 8:30, this is the race for you.
8:30 AM – Pups & Human 5K: The main event is a 5K for pups (on leash) with their human. No solo humans allowed. One pup per human and the race limit is 100 entries. You can fly as fast as your pup pulls you or leisurely stroll the 5K around the golf course. There will be a water stop (for both you and your pup) about halfway through the 5K.
