K9 Heroes Day with Pooch Pursuit 5K-2K is all about canine companions whether on the front line, in the line of duty or keeping their humans “in line”. Hanover County Parks and Recreation invites you and your canine to a “pawtastic” event, including a 5K run-2K walk, amazing demonstrations in the areas of command, protection, obedience and search and rescue, entertaining games and contests in the K9 Fun Zone. Activities will include the Dog-Gone Egg Hunt and Puppy Dash, K9 friendly vendors, pet adoptions and pet health information provided by the onsite veterinarian from Hanover Green Veterinary clinic.   

Bring your K9 running partner, the Pooch Pursuit 5K run-2K walk starts at 9:30AM and each registered participant in the 5K-2K will receive an event t-shirt and a pet friendly goodie bag.
