-ALL DOGS MUST BE ON A LEASH.
-Dogs are allowed to participate in both the 5K and 1 Mile runs.
-Please have a realistic idea of your pets abilities. If they have never ran a 5K before, today is not the day to start.
-If your dog is not the most social or not a fan of big crowds, they will probably want to sit this event out.
-Please do NOT bring female dogs that are currently "In Heat."
-Please pick up after your pets. We know poop happens, but right after it does pick it up.
-If at anytime you are running near a road, please keep your pet on the side of your body furthest from the road to ensure safety.
As a part of the Archer community, we will be adhering to all county emergency guidelines for the safety of all our participants. This means any mask regulations, social distancing practices, etc. will be in place leading up to and on the day of the event. Thank you for your understanding.
Join us after the race for a finisher party and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Archer, FL!
