Paws on the Run Event Description

Start your day with a walk/run with or without your dog(s) before the Minocqua Paws in the Park event starts on Saturday, June 20.  The 2nd annual race begins and ends on Lakeshore Drive in front of the Minocqua Brewery.   Event check in and Race Day Registration begins at 7:00 am in Torpy Park downtown Minocqua WI.  The race starts promptly at 8:00 am.   If you don't have a dog, no worries, you can still participate in the event and join in the fun.  We have added an awards category for those who could not bring a dog.  This 5K event is open to anyone that enjoys being around mans best friend.

The Northwoods Wildlife Center is the beneficiary for our event this year.  All sponsorship money will go directly to the Wildlife Center.

All human participants accompanied by a dog are guaranteed a Paws 5K t-shirt if they register online.  Race Day registrants are not guaranteed a t-shirt.

Bring a leash or a running harness attached to your belt.  All dogs must be kept under control and be up to date on all vaccinations.  Owners are responsible for their dog's behavior.  This is a great excuse to get a little exercise and enjoy quality time with your dog.

Refreshments will be provided for both the owners and the dogs.
