For one day each year, The Resort at Paws Up® becomes a 37,000-acre dog park. This August 25th, join us as we welcome two-legged and four-legged competitors to the annual Canine Classic. Choose between a two-mile walk, a five-mile run or half-marathon through the scenic trails of Paws Up. The Paws Up Foundation will donate all proceeds to WD4C.

Dogs are welcome and encouraged to participate, and can do so off-leash on these trap-free lands.

The run takes you on mostly designated trails and some dirt roads. Runners can expect uneven trails especially through pasture area.

After the race enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch prepared by the amazing team at Paws Up. All race entries include one lunch coupon, a swag bag, and the opportunity to win some great prizes! Additional lunch coupons can be purchased the day of the race for $10. The event is cupless. There will be four aid stations on the 13-mile course.
