Tails to Trails 5KJoin us on Sunday, April 29th, 2018 for the annual Tails to Trails Dog Walk & 5K Run in downtown Dover. This year we are featuring a 5K road race at 11am open to runners and walkers (no dogs allowed on the 5K route), as well as a Dog Walk at 12:00pm. The Dog Walk will be a shorter loop through Henry Law Park for the dogs and the walkers who do not wish to walk the 5K. Come out and support the animals, visit with our vendors, and enjoy an afternoon in beautiful downtown Dover.  It will be a fun time for the whole family, Fido included! We encourage you to pre-register for the 5K (runners & walkers) and the Dog Walk ahead of time with Granite State Racing.

To raise funds online as a team or individually please create a Firstgiving page.

PLEASE NOTE: All participants for both the Dog Walk and the 5K must register through Granite State Racing, NOT through Firstgiving. Registration on Firstgiving will only be applied to your fundraising total, it will NOT register you for either the race or the Dog Walk. If you have any questions please email mburger@cvhsonline.org

If you register by April 15th, 2018 you will receive a free t-shirt at the event! There will be no t-shirts available after April 15th.
