The third annual Run the Ridge Trail Race, to benefit Discover Downtown Westbrook (a 501(c)(3)), will be October 12, 2019. There will be a 5K, 10K, and a Canicross K9 5K!

K9 5K (canicross) participants may only race with one dog and must be connected to their dog at all times, whether by wearing a belt that is connected to a secure harness on the dog or by using a leash that is connected to a harness. The leash cannot be connected to the dog's neck or head. We encourage use of a belt connected to a harness, as this is the safest and easiest way to participate in a canicross race. The dog must not be aggressive or vicious toward people or other dogs, and the owner is liable for any injuries caused by their dog to other runners, dogs, or event attendees.

Owners are also responsible for cleaning up after their dogs - please bring bags. We also encourage runners to bring a portable water bottle, though we will have water bowls available at the water station halfway through the course.
