What's the route?

This stroller-, pet-friendly route will take you around a short scenic tour of Valdez, AK. It's a mass start race with all age groups, starting at the main gate of the John Kelsey Dock (Ferry Dock). From there, racers will head down Hazelet Ave, turn right on Fidalgo Ave, turn left and go up Clifton Drive, turn right onto Hazelet Ave, then right again onto Galena Dr, take a slight left across Meals Ave onto Kobuk Ave, follow Kobuk Ave until turning right onto the Small Boat Harbor boardwalk, follow the boardwalk all the way back to Meals Ave, turning left, follow Meals/ Fidalgo Ave all the way back to the starting line.

Do I have to have a dog or pet?

Quick Answer: NO

Of course not! But, since we are raising money for the Friends of the Valdez Animal Shelter we thought, "hey, why not have a fun run that's about PETS?"... so we created this run. You can certainly participate sans-pet; but just know there will be plenty of pets participating. So those with severe animal allegeries may wanna pop a Benadryl before coming to the race. :-)

Do I have to RUN or WALK?

Quick Answer: NO

I know, I know... you had a blast the past few years blading and biking our Rock N Roll Races. So go ahead, strap on your rollerblades or oil the chains of your bike! We'd love you to blade, bike, run, walk, crawl, or skip your way down the course!! The main objective of this FUN run is for you to have FUN and to raise money for our four-legged, three-legged, two- and one- legged friends at the Valdez Animal Shelter. We don't care what mode of (manual) transportation you use; we just want to see you THERE!
