- This year we are going to have time signs in the start area – PLEASE LINE UP ACCORDING TO YOUR ESTIMATED PACE. Dogs will be in the same group as everyone else but if you line up to your correct pace, there should not be issues of many dogs passing. If in doubt, line up in a slower pace group. Awards will be based on chip times as we do have some fast dogs!
- Pets are allowed to participate with their guardians, but must be up to date with their vaccinations, be able to complete the distance of the event, and must be on a non-retractable leash at all times. The retractable leashes are not permitted due to tripping concerns that we have experienced in previous years.
- Please arrive early to allow yourself time to park, register, pick up your timing chip, and get to the start line. Day-of registration WILL CLOSE AT 7:45 a.m. TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE HAS TIME TO GET THEIR CHIP AND GET TO THE START. If you arrive after 7:45, there is no guarantee that you will be timed and included in the event results!
- We encourage participants to bring items for the pets at the Humane Society Naples, items that they are always in need of are cat litter, laundry detergent, bath towels, paper towels, hand sanitizer, canned dog food, and dryer fabric softener sheets. They do not need dry food.
