If you like to run as much as your dog does, you can do it together and help a worthy cause at this weekend’s 2015 “See Spot Run for Humanity” event.
The 2015 5K Run/Walk is slated to begin at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 2. Registration will begin at 3:45 p.m. at Peck Hall for both people and their canine companions.
Both individuals and groups and their dogs are welcome to participate, and an organization with 15 or more participants may enter as well.
Registration is available at www.active.com, and the entry fee for individuals is $30. Prizes include a dry-fit-style shirt for all participants and awards to the top age group finishers.
Funds raised by “See Spot Run for Humanity” will go to support Rutherford County Habitat for Humanity and the MTSU Habitat Blitz Build.
Each human race participant is required to bring his or her dog’s rabies tag number. Retractable leashes will not be allowed at the race.
The MTSU Office of Student Organizations and Service and Sigma Pi fraternity sponsor the race. For more information, contact the Office of Student Organizations and Service at 615-898-5812 or go to www.mtsu.edu/sos.
