The No Excuses 5K is on Memorial Day and benefits Canine Companions. This group provides service dogs to veterans to help with picking up dropped items and other tasks. Your own dog is welcome to run or walk with you in the 5K or 1-mile event.
The course is in William Land Park and all finishers receive a medal. You will also receive a race shirt and free photos. Dogs receive a race bib shaped like a bone.
