The Myrtle Beach Doggie Dash is a 1-mile dog friendly race. You can either walk or run with your dog. The event helps support the Grand Stand Humane Society.
The Doggie Dash is not a timed event but there will be prizes for the first 3 dogs to finish. All dogs will receive a bandana. Their handlers must wear a race bib. The course will take you on a loop around the Grand Park Lake Market Common.
Other races going on over the weekend include the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon which is a half marathon. There is also a 5K. Dogs are not allowed in these events.
Both the half marathon and 5K offer a “rucking division” where participants race with a weighted pack. Those who weigh 150 lbs and under must wear a 10-lb pack. Anyone over 150 lbs will wear a 20-lb pack.
The Doggie Dash is sponsored by Black Dog Running Company, a retail company for runners and walkers.
