THE FIDDLERS GREEN 5K IS NOW DOG FRIENDLY !! COME RUN OR WALK THE 5K OR 0.9K WITH YOUR DOG AND RECEIVE A FINISHERS MEDAL FOR YOURSELF AND A CUSTOMIZED FINISHERS MEDAL FOR YOUR DOG TOO !
After the non-furry (so we hope…) participants of the 5K start the run/walk at 7:30 A.M., through the shaded tree lined streets of Winter Park, the Fiddlers 5K-9 begins at 7:45 A.M. This is a 5K and a shorter 0.9K run/walk for both you and your favorite furry friend(s). You can choose which distance best suits your dog’s abilities. All we ask is that all dogs be kept on a leash (no retractable leashes) during the 5K or 0.9K. Also please be courteous and careful.
At the finish, your dog will also receive a customized finisher’s medal for completing the race ! (That hopefully will not turn into another chew toy)
Then following the 5K-9, everyone is invited back to Fiddlers Green Irish Pub for a free beer and party. There will be an outside party zone also so you can bring your dog. Live Irish entertainment is provided by Celtic Clan, the house band from the Black Rose Bar in Boston, who will perform along with Irish dancers, bagpipes, and more.
The Fiddlers 5K-9 will also include contests and gift card prizes for the “Best Dog Costume” and “Best Human/Dog Lookalike”. So get you and your furry friend ready to join in on the Fiddlers 5K-9!
