My name is Gentleman Willie and I am here to say Happy Monday to all you Basset lovers out there. I hope you all had a great weekend and got to do something fun. I still have stitches in my foot from my surgery so I got to chill out and watch a little football.... Read my story >>
Runners and walkers are invited to the inaugural Hound Dog Hustle, a dog-friendly 5K run/walk on October 12, 2014. We encourage you to bring the whole family out for this event, including the dog! This event benefits the Carolina Basset Hound Rescue, a nonprofit organization that saves homeless hounds from high kill shelters in the Carolinas, rehabilitates them through foster care, and finds them loving forever homes. You can run or walk a 5K and help save homeless hounds all at once — not bad for a Sunday morning!
The Hound Dog Hustle begins and ends near Sedgefield Park in Charlotte’s South End. The run/walk winds through the Sedgefield neighborhood between Park Road and South Boulevard. This is such a great community and we’re anticipating cheering spectators along the way. Come hang out with neighbors, family, and friends to help an admirable and adorable cause.
There will also be a fun run with medals for the kids after the 5K. Other kid-friendly activities will include face painting and a playground.
This IS a timed race and is open to ALL levels. Runners will line up first, then runners with dogs, then walkers. Strollers and wagons are welcome as long as they start with the walkers.
We encourage you to register now! You can also register the morning of the race from 7:00-8:00 am. T-shirts are not guaranteed for race day registrants. Registration and Information
