K9 Canter Fun Run (approx 8/10 mile) Untimed

$15 9:00AM MDT Price increases after September 23, 2023 at 11:59pm MDT

Celebrating all that is the wonderful season of Fall with two distances to choose from!!   We will have a 5k distance and a special K9 Canter 1 mile fun run!!  Think caramel apples, cooler temps, and apple cider. Enter the 5k event and you'll compete in a run in and around Carpenter Park Fields in Thornton.

Not ready for a 5k? Do you have a silly sweater for your pup, or maybe some butterfly wings and a tiara?  The K9 Canter fun run is the event you've been waiting for!  Come show off your dog and its costume!  We'll have rewards for the best matching costume (owner and pooch) and the dog who best impersonates a different animal!  The fun run is designed for your dressed up companion and yourself, but you can run it solo as well. Dogs, however, may not run the course by themselves.

Come celebrate the Best of Fall in Thornton, Colorado.  You'll enjoy warm cider at the finish line and crisp caramel apples for every finisher!
