Glow DOG Glow 1 mile and 5k Walk and Run

Register today for the one mile and/or 5k Glow DOG Glow event to support Friends of Homeless Animal's mission of saving abandoned, abused and neglected companion animals. Glow Dog Glow is the ONLY glow event for dogs and their owners in Northern Virginia!  

The Glow DOG Glow event will start at 7:00pm with different waves of dogs every 3-5 minutes. Glow Dog Glow is a night time race that is full of exciting, glowing surprises along the entire race course. It is not scary and nothing moves or jumps at you—so it is safe for most animals and children.
