Join us on Saturday, June 11, 2022, for the Dog Days 5K & 2 Mile Walk at FestivalSouth! This is a great event for the whole family that benefits the Hub City Service Dogs program, a nonprofit organization in Hattiesburg, MS, that trains service dogs for individuals with medical disabilities.
The 5K and Two-Mile is an early morning run/walk – to beat the heat – with or without dogs. Both routes will both start (and finish) at Kamper Park (105 Park Avenue in Hattiesburg), at 7:30 a.m. This is a pup-friendly race, with water stations for both runners and canines along the route. All dogs are required to be on a fixed leash. The route will take participants through the Avenues of Hattiesburg, a quaint neighborhood with a shaded path. Community volunteers, as well as clients of Hub City Service Dogs, will be there to cheer you along the way! The race will end at Kamper Park, with a Finish Line Festival for both race participants and their pets.
