FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The D.E. King Equine Program at the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Department of Animal Science will host its annual Dash4Cash 5K and 1 Mile Dog Walk at the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Center between 8 a.m. and noon April 20. Dog walk and running events will cost $25 per person to participate. Participants will receive specially designed t-shirts and goodie bags.

Dash4Cash will begin at 8 a.m. with a 5K run followed by a 5K in which participants can run with their dog at 9 a.m. and a one-mile dog walk at 10 a.m.

“This event was well received last year,” says Kathi Jogan, instructor and event coordinator. “We were advised to establish either a serious running event or a quirky one. We decided to take being quirky very seriously and make this a fun event for everyone.”

There will be unique prizes for winners and an obstacle course for dogs. All activities will take place at the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science Center and Agri Park. Participants may pre-register at http://race-wizard.com.
