Can I bring my dog?
We love dogs, but no dogs are allowed within 100 feet of any aid station (including the start and finish) for races. Dogs at the race must be leashed and not left unattended. Runners are not allowed to run with dogs unless they are service animals approved by the RD. Barking, aggressive, or otherwise disruptive dogs may result in being kicked out of the event. The Town of Buena Vista has a leash law, your dog needs to be on a leash at all times in the city limits. Dogs are discouraged from being within the event headquarters area and event street closure.
