Home Newsroom 33. First Annual Dash for the Dogs Family Fun Day

Now here’s a first for Barrington…a 5K that’s for the dogs!!! There are a number of road races in town throughout the year, but there’s a new one happening TOMORROW where your pooch is part of the program. That’s right. Take some laps with Fido for a good cause tomorrow in the first annual Dash for the Dogs at Citizen’s Park.

Dash for the Dogs in Barrington, Illinois

The Dash for the Dogs is hosted by and will benefit Animal House, a non-profit, No-Kill shelter for all breeds of dogs and cats in Huntley, Illinois. The cost is $30 and the run starts promptly at 10 a.m. tomorrow, but the signup will begin well before that.

Registration and packet pick up starts at Citizens park at 8 a.m., two hours prior to the 5K dog dash. After the run walk there will be a 1 mile fun walk for kids and pets. But the fun won’t stop there! There’s a whole day of fun at the park planned in honor of our most loyal and furry friends. There will be catered food, kids games, pets, a bags tournament, free-throw contest, music, a cat and dog themed jewelry boutique and much more in the park until 5pm. There will also be pet portrait artists on hand to capture photos of your pup in action.  Dogs are welcome, as long as they are children friendly and dog friendly.

Tomorrow’s Dash for the Dogs is also sponsored by a favorite hot spot for local pets, The Dog House of Barrington.  You’ll find Citizens Park at 511 Lake Zurich Road. To learn more about Animal House Shelter, visit their website at AnimalHouseShelter.com.
