This dog friendly event invites participants with and without dogs to experience the Park alongside four-legged friends to benefit the Piedmont Park Dog Parks. Flapping ears and wagging tails are encouraged.

After the dash and 5K, hand out in the sponsor circle for cool swag and information from our dog vendors.

The walk/run begins at the Promenade at Piedmont Park.
