Iowa Dog Jog/Walk-Run-Jog

  • Overview

    Walk + Run + Wag...Join us for the Iowa Dog Jog on Sunday, September 20, 2020!

    The race will have both 2K and 5K options for our athletic friends, and of course an awesome dog festival for the party animals in our life! You and your pup can play in the pop-up dog park and visit with vendors that will be offering discounts, giveaways, and great products and services for your dog!

    100% of the net proceeds will help provide food, shelter, and medical care for the thousands of homeless pets that arrive at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa each year.

    PACKET PICK-UP INFORMATION:  Race packet pick-up is Saturday, September 19 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m, or Sunday September 20 from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. at Terra Park in Johnston.

    RACE STARTS: 10 a.m.

    COVID UPDATE: The ARL is committed to following all health and government guidelines to ensure the safety of our Iowa Dog Jog participants, vendors, and volunteers.  In the event the coronavirus pandemic forces this event to move virtually in 2020, the ARL commits to do everything in our power to create a memorable experience, including delivering swag and fundraising prizes on or prior to the event day.  In these unprecedented times, your support is needed now, more than ever.
