Dog Trot is a family-oriented fun run event that takes place prior to Petpalooza at the park. Participants will follow a 3K or 5K route. The course is flat, easy and enjoyable for all ages. Water will be available on the course for dogs and human participants. Back again this year, Auburn’s Dog Trot will offer “chip” timing, allowing participants the most accurate finish time. Visit auburnwa.gov/petpalooza for a registration form (and a convenient online registration option), rules and complete event information.
