Lace up your shoes, leash up the dog, and jog on down for the second annual Carrollton Trails 5K run on May 4, 2013. This competitive run is open to everyone and has prizes for all categories. Runners of all ages are invited to join, and are encouraged to bring the kids and the family dog. Runners will be divided into nine groups:
- Under 10 category
- 11-14 category

- 20-29 category
- 30-39 category
- 40-49 category
- 50-59 category
- 60-69 category

Awards will be given to both men and women and each of the top three finishers of each category. As if that weren’t enough, there will also be a prize awarded to the top three dogs that are registered and the top three runners who are pushing a stroller. How long has it been since you took your pooch on a nice long run? This is a great way for him to get some exercise and attention.
