DOG LOVERS THIS ONE IS FOR YOU!
Join us for our inaugural year for the Wag Run & Walk 5k/1-mile. This event is for walkers, runners, families, kids and their dogs! The course takes you on a trail through Eagal Lakes Resort along the scenic San Joaquin River.

The Wag Runners will start at 8:00 am with the Wag Walkers at 8:05 am.
Not a runner? No worries. The Wag Run is perfect for all dogs and their people! Joggers, walkers, and even outright dawdlers are welcome. The 1-mile Kids & Families walk/run will start at 8:10 am. This course takes you in a loop around our beautiful lake on a wide smooth rock and hard pack path that stroller approved and handicap accessible.
Runners and their dogs must run safely to prevent entangling other runners and their dogs. Participants and their dogs must run/walk the entire course. The course will have water station for walkers and their dogs about halfway through the course.
All Wag Runners, Walkers and their dogs will receive a Finishers Medal and Dog Tag at the finish line.

We’ll keep the party going with a DJ, bar specials, food trucks and pet friendly retail vendors for you to shop, eat and delight in.
