Doggie Day Fair 2

Get your paws ready for the first-ever TailRunners: The Metro Dog Run 2010!

This post was filed under Doggie Fun Runs, Fundraisers and Drives.

Is it obvious I’m so excited for this upcoming event? Well, I am! 😀 You see, my husband and I have been joining fun runs lately — for health and bonding purposes. We’ve been wishing we could bring our little Shih Tzus along, but the shortest distance event there is in a human run race is usually 3km — a distance too far for my short-legged sweethearts. Besides, it’s really not advisable to bring dogs to a human race event. The sheer number of people in one place could be hazardous for the humans and the dogs themselves. And that’s why I can’t wait for TailRunners: The Metro Dog Run 2010!!! 😀

For the first time, a race event tailor-made to accommodate dogs! The race kits include not only singlets for human racers, but “race bandanas” and poop scooper for their canine partners as well 😀 But that’s not all… The race event categories and race maps were also made for dogs in mind — 1.5km, 3km and 5km. The 1.5km event is a realistic distance for short-legged fur-babies like mine — Shantee can do 2km walkies, did you know? 😀 Winners will receive prizes. Though Shantee and I don’t have illusions of winning the race, we’re still banking on finishing it!

Can’t run? Well, you and your dog can still join in the fun! At around 6:15am, fun games will begin for non-runners. A lot of activities are planned from 4:00am to 10:00am on race day, dog-lovers like you just shouldn’t miss it!

TailRunners: The Metro Dog Run 2010 will be held on Saturday, 17 April 2010 at the SM Mall of Asia and is co-presented by Royal Canin, Pet Express, and MyPetChannel.tv. For more details, visit the official TailRunners microsite. See you there!!! 😀
