Hot Diggity Dog 5K

Hot Diggity Dog 5K 2021 Virtual Race Information

The Hot Diggity Dog 5K Run is virtual this year.  The time to register is now through May 22, 2021.

You will need to register and pay your registration fee to participate in this virtual event. The registration fee is $25.00. Registration fee includes your T-shirt and your medal. ** If you want your T-shirt and medal mailed to you, please add an additional $5.00 to your registration fee.**

We are hosting our Virtual race through Race Roster and you will need to sign up through them to enter your race stats.

So between March 1st and May 22nd, you will need to run your 5K, record your time and send it to Race  Roster to keep yourself in the running for a placement medal.

When you register (or if you have already registered), you will receive an email from Race Roster that will outline "HOW" to send in your information. They are on top of things and this will be fun for all!!

2021 is going to be a GREAT YEAR!!! We have all had to pull together as a community over this past year and we are looking forward to this wonderful opportunity to come together once again. So gather all of your family and friends "safely" and let's all get together "virtually" and have a GREAT race!!

Make sure to explore our website for other information about Gallant Hearts and check out our Facebook page to see our puppies and our puppy raisers.

Your participation helps these puppies grow into Guide Dogs for those in need!!
