Canine Classic is a dog-friendly 5k run/walk for participants of all ages. (A canine companion is optional.) This is a professionally-timed event that can be used as a BolderBOULDER qualifying time. 

This year, the event will feature local DJ, Blakk Caesar (Henry Mitchell), delicious food from the Wheel & Whisk food truck, doggie vendor expo and more fun than you can shake a stick at.

All proceeds benefit Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA), a program of Mental Health Partners.





We are a zero waste event!
