Are dogs allowed?
The Run With Heart will attract a large crowd, where many dogs would be uncomfortable and possibly unpredictable, and therefore we ask you not to bring any pets unless you and they are experienced in such situations. For wise and responsible pet-owners, well-behaved dogs and their courteous and well-behaved owners are welcome. If your pet acts out or causes a problem you will be held responsible for any damage to persons or property during the event. Well behaved dogs may start in the last group and course officials reserve the right to pull them from the course if it is deemed necessary. Note: they poop, you scoop…Immediately!
