Event Dog Days of Summer

Come on out and join the fun for the 3rd annual Dog Days of Summer 5K, 10K, Half Marathon & 1 Mile Doggy Dash!! The heat is on, but with autumn right around the corner, what better way to keep yourself and the pooch in shape and get ready for the fall marathon season in Colorado?! This is far more than an event just for dogs! Get your tech t-shirt, goody bag, professional timing, free photos and much, much more at this event as you wrap up the summer with a fast 5K or 10K!

AND, for our pooch people participants, check this out as well!

Dog water bowls at every aid station
Doggy treats at the start and finish
Dog Goody Bags
Dog awards for the Top Dog (first across the finish line), Hot Dog (best dog costume), Under Dog (biggest dog), Big Dog (smallest dog), — Dawg Dog (coolest dog)
Dogs must be leashed. We ask that everyone bring pooch poop bags to clean up along the way. And if your K9 decides to stop and won’t go on, please be prepared to carry them over the finish line!

This event is the Second in the Stapleton Run Series…
