The canicross will be a 5k timed race through sprawling Smiling Hills Farms, in Westbrook, Maine just minutes from Portland. The race and all proceeds are to benefit “K9s on the Front Line,” a nonprofit organization that works to rescue shelter dogs by training them to be certified service dogs and thus fit to assist suffering PTSD/TBI military veterans.

In addition to the race, pet and food vendors will be present, along with an obstacle course for kids by Maine Warrior Gym. The Downeast Sled Dog Club will also be demonstrating dry land racing events.
