About the event

We will be using a "trickle start" strategy: participants can begin the race anytime between 9:00 and 10:00 am, completing either the 2k walk, 2k run, or 5k run depending on their preference, and all racers must have completed the race by 12:00pm. Doggy bags will be available at the start or finish of the race (depending on preference), and door prizes will be able to be picked up at the end of the race.

If you are registering on or before April 13, make sure you use coupon code "RWTBD" at checkout to receive your pre-registrant discount. 

Run with the Big Dogs (RWTBD) was started in 1997 as a way to raise funds to help the Pocatello Animal Shelter get a much needed new building. In February 2015, with the help of the citizens of Pocatello, that goal was met. However, all involved in RWTBD had so much fun that we decided to continue to hold the event annually. All funds raised by the event are used to benefit animals in the Pocatello area.   Some of the funds will specifically go towards those animals temporarily housed at the Pocatello Animal Shelter through programs such as the Second Chance Fund, Pocatello Pets 4 Vets, and Katie's Old Friends. Run with the Big Dogs is a 2k walk/run or 5k run. Registrants may walk/run with or without a dog or in memory of a beloved pet. Pre-registrants receive a t-shirt and a "doggy bag" full of freebies. Dogs who participate receive a bandanna (while supplies last). All registrants are also entered into a prize drawing (registrants must be present to win)!
