Dog Star Rescue Dog Gone Fast Mile
Fleet Feet Hartford in collaboration with the Thomas Hooker Brewery, Dog Star Rescue, TrueForm and Hoka One One are hosting this unique event to celebrate the Dog Days of Summer and to raise money for Dog Star Rescue to help them continue finding forever homes for orphan dogs!
The event has two parts: a series of mile races for humans and canines (with heats for kids, adults and owner+dog), as well as a treadmill marathon being run by Fleet Feet staffer, Alex Norstrom. Runners will have the opportunity to sponsor one of his miles and run with him on a TrueForm Treadmill - and one lucky donor will win a pair of Hoka One One Clifton's!
Your registration includes a doggone fun medal and a post-race buffet featuring Bears BBQ and a cold beverage from Thomas Hooker Brewery (non-alcoholic beverages for those under 21 years of age) . Dogs (and their owners) are invited to hang-out and play in Dog Star's play room pre and post race. All proceeds from the events will be donated to Dog Star Rescue.
The fastest male and female, as well as the human who ran with the fastest dog will win Clifton's from Hoka One One.
