Make Plans to “Run With the Dogs” January 8th

From Bill Ainslee:

The Sixth Annual Run With The Dogs is January 8th! The Decatur Bulldog Boosters would like to let the Decatur dog-loving and running communities know of the 6th Annual Decatur Bulldog Boosters 5K “Run with the Dogs” on Saturday, January 8th at 9:00 a.m. The race will feature a single 5K race where runners and dog-owners can run with (or without) their dogs. T-shirts, awards, and treats will be available to race participants as well as a sporty “race”-kerchief for canine participants. Sponsorship opportunities are available for a limited time. All proceeds go to funding the uniform, equipment, and awards for our student-athletes at the middle and high schools. So come on out and run off a few of those Holiday calories with Decatur and its Dogs! This will be the first race in the inaugural year of the City of Decatur’s Grand Slam of Fitness which encourages Team Decatur participants, as well as the entire City, to walk/run year round, beginning with the Run with the Dogs in January. In the wake of the City of Decatur and Team Decatur’s success in the KP Corporate Run/Walk and winning the Most Fit City Award, Team Decatur is ready to make 2011 an active year in Decatur! Complete 4 of 6 races and become entitled to move into the ranks of “Grand Slam Winners!” So get ready and get you and your canine fit and come join the DBB on January 8th, 2011, for the Winter Run with the Dogs!
