Many people train for weeks to run in the Miami Marathon but there is a better race coming to the city. Instead of training alone, train with your dog. Next month, you'll be able to run for the first time with your dog on a 5k race.
The Dogathon is going to be the first ever race in Miami for dogs and humans. And, the best part is that dogs will get a special treat. So, train this weekend with your furry friend and get ready for a fun race. Well, it might get a bit competitive.
This is a dog-friendly race and winners will get trophies for 1st runner and 2nd runner with a pet. Even though your dog doesn't win, it will get a special treat.

This race is completely free and it will start with a 5K walk/run. After the race, there will demonstrations, contests, and games for the dogs. There will be experts in training, several treats and organic food brands for your dogs, and other fun things for your friendly canine.
If you don't have plans for that Sunday, come to the race and meet other dog moms and dad pups. Your dog can make a new friend and you can meet your other neighbors too. If you don't have a dog but still want to participate, ask your neighbor to walk the dog for free.
Also, you will be able to donate for a cause. The Miami Dade Animal Shelter is partnering with the community to raise funds for the facility. The race will start and end at the Margaret Pace Park in Miami. This location is the most dog-friendly environment and it's perfect to hang around after the race.
Be ready to get in shape with your dog and win some special treats!
