The most frequently asked question: Can we run or walk with our dog? The answer: Preferrably not. 

This is a running/walking event that was designed without pets in mind as a matter of safety. Our course winds through the neighborhoods of Franklin and we cannot assure anyone that Franklin residents have their pets under control at all times. Additionally, the course is shared with vehicular traffic. So, for safety’s sake, please do not plan to have your dog on the course. We won't stop anyone from bringing their pet on the course, but all liability is on the pet owner. We want everyone to have lots of fun, but we also want everyone to be safe and complete the course under their own power!

We look forward to seeing all of you Sunday morning!
