Hill's Great Rover Road Run (GRRR) is an annual event with the goal of promoting health and wellness for our four-legged friends and ourselves with the added benefit of raising money the LSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital's Good Samaritan Fund.  This is a fun and exciting event for all involved!  Whether you are ready for a 5K or simply want to take your pet for a fun stroll, this event promises a day full of activities and community togetherness. All proceeds and donations from the 2022 race will go to the LSU SVM Veterinary Teaching Hospital's Good Samaritan Fund which is used to treat owner-less animals who are sick or injured.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year's race will be completed virtually. Take your sneakers to a route you love or explore and find a new one! 

Please park your vehicle in the parking lot across from the vet school and walk across Skip Bertman Drive to the GRRR table on the back side of the auditorium. A detailed map with how to locate the race pack table will be sent out later. Your race pack will include a GRRR T-Shirt and a Hill's Pet Nutrition Goodie bag. You may designate someone to pick up your pack for you. We also please ask that our participants wear masks and social distance when picking up their packs! Thank you for your commitment in keeping your peers healthy and safe.

Last day for registration with a race t-shirt included is March 10, 2022 at 11:59PM!
