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.

Here are a few of the things we thought of to change for next year:
- Course maps – we had some last minute changes 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.
- We 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.
Register for next year’s run now for only $18 ($2 off) until May 8th, 2014.
