If you love to run and/or if you love dogs, plan to join in the 7th annual “Run With the Dogs” on Saturday, January 7, 2012 starting in front of the Decatur High School auditorium at 9 a.m. Registration begins at 8 a.m.
This annual event, produced by the Decatur Bulldog Boosters, is a single 5K race where runners and dog owners can run with (or without) their dogs. All proceeds go to funding the uniform, equipment, and awards for DHS student-athletes at the middle and high schools.
This race is also the first race of the New Year in Decatur’s 2012 Grand Slam Fitness Challenge in which Team Decatur participants and the entire city are encouraged to walk/run year round. Complete 4 of 6 Decatur races and be eligible to become a “Grand Slam Winner.” The 2011 winners will be presented on Jan 6 right after the race.
