Join us for another fun 5k at Bull Run! Have your dog bring their favorite human or humans for a 5k run or walk at our Special Events Center. All dogs receive a custom pet bandanna to take their cuteness to the next level, and all humans receive a matching t-shirt, custom bib and chip timed event. Don’t have a furry friend of your own? We’d still love to have you join us!
