About the event

Get Involved


Join us on "The Cross-Country Course Track" at the WakeMed Soccer Park, Cary, NC to run, jog, walk, or cheer- with or without your dog. This very unique fun event is branded for all types of participants with a specific focus to runners of all ages, dog owners, active military and veterans, and fans of all kind. This unique track allows all participants & canines to experience both the woods and the open field.

Race check-in & day of event registration is at 9:00 AM. The race opening ceremony starts at 10:00 AM, followed by the race. The event is located at 940 E. Chatham St., Cary, N.C. Look for the signs to the Cross Country 5K Course Track.

This fundraiser will make a difference for our local veterans with service dogs supported by Vets To Vets United, Inc., a local non-profit 501(C)3 organization. We pair and train service dogs with local disabled veterans suffering from PTS, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or other physical or mental service connected issues. After a 2 yr. training program, these service dogs significantly improve their life by providing companionship and help them with their mental or physical disability. This also saves the life of a dog facing euthanasia by adopting the animal from a local animal shelter. This annual fund-raiser helps us to fund this challenge.

There will be product vendors, veteran organizations, a DJ with great encouragement music, snacks & water, and fun activities for your dog. Bring your support fans to cheer you on & to have fun as well. An encouraging opening and closing ceremony is planned.
