Register today for our 5 week RunningDog Anything is Pawsible Challenge!

This virtual challenge is a fundraising event for the RunningDog non profit organization. This organization recruits, trains and equips runners who take adoptable dogs on running adventures. Check us out at!

Our challenge to you is to run, walk or hike 50 miles between May 2, 2021 and June 6, 2021! Every participant that completes this challenge will be entered into a raffle to win our fabulous  grand prize!

But that's not the only way to win a prize! 

Weekly goals!

Each week a goal of 10 miles is set and if you achieve the goal of 10 miles per week, you will automatically be entered into that week's prize raffle! 



There will be an option for fundraising for RunningDog during registration. Each registrant who fundraises $50 will be entered into our end-of-event fundraiser raffle. No need to stop at $50 though! Our top fundraiser will receive 10 extra tickets for the fundraising raffle.


Weekly Social Media Themes!

Each week has a fun theme that will help us stay in touch with you using Facebook or the Strava platform. Each week the theme will ask you to be on the lookout for that perfect selfie or photo to share with our event! Each time you upload the weekly challenge photos, you will be entered into that week's raffle. And since we are a canine centric organization we can't exclude your furry family member, can we? Each week's theme will include your dog!
