NC State to Hold 13th Annual Dog Day Race on April 5

North Carolina State University invites runners and dog owners to compete in the 13th Annual Dog Day Race charity event on Saturday, April 5, at the NC State University Club. The event features a 5K run for people only and a two-mile walk for people with their dogs.

The 5K run begins at 9 a.m. and the two-mile walk begins at 10 a.m. Gift certificates will be given to the male and female winners of the 5K race.

Water will be provided for both human and canine competitors. A veterinarian will be available throughout the activity, but participants are advised to check with their own veterinarian if their dog is not accustomed to walking two miles. Dogs must be on a leash at all times and have a current rabies inoculation. A complete list of rules for those participating with their dogs is contained in the entry form, which may be downloaded from

The entry fee for the 5K run is $20 until March 31 and $25 after that date. The entry fee for the walk is $10 until March 31 and $15 after that date. On-site registration will be available for both events and a 32 oz. water bottle will be given to those who register by the March 31 early registration deadline.

The Annual Dog Day Race is sponsored by NC State College of Veterinary Medicine’s student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Proceeds from the charity event go to the Wake County Animal Shelter. The University Club is located at 4200 Hillsborough St., next to the College of Veterinary Medicine.
