The second annual 5K-9 Run For The Dogs is this Saturday, October 6.  This fun 5K starts on the Lester Park nordic trails before transitioning onto Seven Bridges Road.

The $30 entry fee includes a long sleeve race shirt and, according to organizers,:

The proceeds from this 5k Run / Walk directly support the K-9 units of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Duluth Police Department, Hermantown Police Department, St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office and Superior Police Department. Come participate in this event on October 6th at 9am and meet for yourself some of our local K-9s.

While there are a few easy to navigate hills, the course is mostly level with stable running surfaces throughout, so running shoes can be worn rather than trail shoes.  The course also features some amazing scenery.

Race packet pickup will take place October 6 between 7:00 a.m. - 8:45 a.m. at the Lester Park Pavilion and the 5K starts at 9:00 a.m.
