Pooch Partners’ Second Annual Doggie Duathlon is the perfect way to get out and active with your dog.
This fun, non-competitive event, scheduled for Aug. 11, is open to people (18 and older) and dogs of all fitness levels and provides options of a 1.6, five, or 10-kilometre walk/run followed by a 25 or 50-metre swim (just the dogs swim).
“Our inaugural event last year was a lot of fun and this year we hope to see it grow,” said Shelly Korobanik, owner of Pooch Partners. “The event is a fun experience for all participants and we have some great random draw prizes from a number of our sponsors.”
Last year, the event helped raise almost $500 for the Vernon branch of the B.C. SPCA, and this year’s event will support the Vernon & District Animal Care Society.
Registration is available in person at Stussi Sport (Wednesday to Saturday) and online at www.poochpartners.ca.
