If taking your best four-legged friend for walks is one of your (and his) favorite things to do, then you’ll want to sign up for this year’s Mutt Strut. This year marks the event’s 10th annual dog-friendly 5K and 1-mile fun run, scheduled for April 20, 2019, on the UAB Campus Green. Start prepping Fido now to make sure both of you are primed and ready to race.
Lace Up and Leash Up
Marking the 10th “annifursary” of this dog-centric event, Hand in Paw’s 2019 Mutt Strut will be celebrating with a day of tail-wagging good times on the UAB Campus Green. Get creative with costumes for you and your pup, shop local vendors in the Mutt Strut Vendor Village, stop by the Kids’ Tent for kid-friendly activities, and enjoy several food truck vendors.
And then, of course, there are the races. If you and your pet aren’t quite at the top of your class when it comes to speed, there are other ways to win prizes and bragging rights. In addition to awards for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Fastest Human (male and female) and Fastest Dog, there will also be recognition for:
- Top Individual Fundraiser
- Top Team Fundraiser
- Best Dog Costume
- Best Human & Dog Duo Costume
- Best Team Costume
- Slowest Dog
