The Inaugural Dirty Dogger

Obstacle Course Race and 3k Fun Run to Benefit Heeling House


Gather your favorite canine pal and your sense of adventure...

Gear up for our first ever Dirty Dogger race, brought to you by Dirty Dogs Inc.! This obstacle course is the first of its kind, challenging humans and dogs alike to work together as a team to navigate ten fun and unique obstacles. Traverse the Dog Bog, army crawl your way through the crawl space, and climb over the Himalayan Climb to the finish line! The three contestants with the shortest time and most points will receive special prizes, and everyone receives bragging rights to say you competed in this one-of-a-kind race.
Also participate in our 3k Fun Run and Costume Contest! This will take place during the halftime of our Dirty Dogger, and is open to people and dogs of all ages. In the spirit of Halloween, we invite you to dress up you and your pets in the most clever costume you can think of. Prizes will be awarded to first human across the finish line, first dog across the finish line, and the person/dog with the best costume.
