About The Race
This is a fun, flat, and fast early season race for a great cause. Winding through the beautiful Cross Island Trail, runners of all skill levels can participate in any of the three distances available. Everyone receives finisher medals, craft beer (for those of age), and some of the coolest age group prizes ever!
There are three distances of the Get Pumped for Pets this year and a walking option that is not timed. They are:
Each of the three running distances are USATF certified and the 15k is the second race in the Maryland RRCA Grand Prix Series.
Due to insurance regulations, no dogs or strollers are allowed on the course. However, dogs are welcome with spectators in the finish area. A virtual dog walk option is available for any who lives far away or can't bear the thought of running without their favorite companion. At the registration page, simply select the "virtual dog walk" option to support the charity and receive Get Pumped for Pets merchandise.
Get Pumped for Pets is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to saving and improving the lives of animals throughout the mid-Atlantic region by providing funding and/or supplies to community rescue organizations through grants and gifts.
