woof pack run club
Have you ever thought about running a 5K or just want to learn to run with your dog? Let us help you cross the finish line!
Dogs are like people in that they cannot go from a sedentary lifestyle to instantly running multiple miles. They need to train, too! Not only will this be a healthy activity for you and your dog, it is also a valuable training tool as your dog learns basic obedience as they run with the pack.
Our 8-week program includes weekly walk/runs in Phil Hardberger Park, conditioning exercises and stretching, weekly “homework” to keep you on track, tips for running with your dog, and a private Facebook group where you can reach out to other Run Club members! Of course, dogs are welcome.
The program begins April 11 in Panther Springs Park (Wilderness Oak entrance) and will finish May 30. Weekly runs take place Thursdays at 6:45 pm. This program is perfect for beginners (human and canine!) and social runners.
