2015 K9 Run

Thank you everyone who came out and supported our K9 Run this year. It was a beautiful day and a fun event. We look forward to seeing all of you again next year, April 2, 2016. Mark your calenders.

We unfortunately were not able to have chip timing this year as we had wanted and planned for. Therefore, the timing was done by hand. Thank you all for your patience as we needed time to enter the data into the computer.

Thank you for participating in our 2014 rAnytimeFitnessLogoun to support the Stayton Police Departments K9 program. This was our biggest running event to date.

Each year is a learning experience for us, and we are striving to make this an enjoyable SH_logo_V-4c_800x500experience for all of our participants.

Here are a few of the things we thought of to change for next year:

  •  Course maps – we had some last minute corp logo RGBchanges in the course maps. We didn’t feel that it was fair to send out a course map that we would be revising. But we will most likely have the same courses next year. We will post the maps soon and have some available on site the day of the event, too.
  • WhereToStartLogo4PMSwTAGWe will have more volunteers and arrow signs on the course rather than just the path markings.
  • We hope to have medals for our runners next year.
  • We will have a few mile markers on the course, at least for the 9K run.
  • We will have bottled water and dog water bowls at the finish line.
  • We are going to stagger the start by a whole minute and have a v-shaped corral to help you have more space right from the beginning.
  • There is a good possibility that we will have a chip-timing system donated for us next year!  Fingers crossed.

    Can we still sign up tomorrow morning for this race?


  3. Joanie Shook says:

    I was just wondering if the results for the K9 race are posted somewhere?

    • Where to Start says:

      Thanks for your patience. Because we had to do them by hand, we just got them posted on the K9 page. Also, please take a moment to complete the survey to help us with next year’s event. And as a thank you, anyone who registers for next year by May 8th saves $2!

    My company would potentially like to be a sponsor of your run. Please email me info if this is an option! Thank you!

    When and where will results be posted? And I did not see a timing chip on my bib so was it hand written?
