Dog lovers, hold on to your leashes! Coming up in early June is a virtual race to outdo them all: The Puppy Run.
Brought to you by the same folks that created the amazing Pi Day 5k (on 3/14/15), The Puppy Run has 5k (3.1 miles), 10k (6.2 miles), and half marathon (13.1 miles) options! With adorable medals and shirts, sweet swag for kiddos and pooches, and a great charity to support, how could you *not* want to run this race?
Better yet is the possibility of winning awards. (I won a prize for my Instagram video for the Pi Day 5k, so I can vouch for the fact that these people know how to pick awards!) There are a number of categories for awards including largest team, best team name, best photo, best puppy photo, fastest runner, and most inspirational.
So here’s the rundown…
Who can run?
Anyone. Adults, kids, dogs… anyone who wants to get moving in the name of love for our four-legged friends.
When is it?
Run your chosen distance between June 5 and 8. The “virtual” aspect of the run means that you run when you want, where you want, however fast/slow you want.
What’s in it for me?
A good time, a well-motivated run, sweet swag, a nationwide group hug for puppies, and the knowledge that your registration fee supports a good charity.
Want to sign up? Good! I have a discount code for you.
Use code karissa10 to receive 10% off your registration. You can share it with friends, family, colleagues, or other pooch parents to share the love so everyone can participate in The Puppy Run. In fact, I’d prefer that you share it as much as possible! Register here!
My pup Trixie will be joining me on a 5k that weekend, so feel free to join us in this virtual event!
