CONCORD, NH  — Running the Boston Marathon might not be an option for everyone but running or walking a 5K can be, even for a dog. The Animal Rescue League of NH will be hosting Paws on the Pavement 5K, a family and dog-friendly race, on June 9 in Concord.

The 3.1 mile course will start and end at Northeast Delta Dental and run through the NHTI campus.

“The Paws on the Pavement 5K is one of the few races in the state where your dog can participate and even receive their own chip-timed bib if you’d like. Your participation in this fun race gives you a chance (with or without your canine companion) to stretch your legs, and help animals in need, as proceeds benefit the Animal Rescue League of NH,” said Marianne Jones, Director of Administration & Communications.


Those who register by April 19 will receive 15 percent off registration using code PAWS19.
