DOG BUCKS - THE EASY WAY TO PAY!
Instead of fumbling around for cash, or going through the steps of running a card, simply pay with Dog Bucks. Dog Bucks represent cash dollar-for-dollar and come in five dollar increments. Please note, there are no ATM's on site. Please note, we cannot make change for Dog Bucks.
NEW! - MEMORIAL MILE SIGN
Purchase a memorial sign(s) to recognize a loved one, two legged or four, on race day. This is great for dogs who prefer to stay at home, remembering those who are no longer with us, or just showing off how much your pet or loved one means to you. Pick from three different options - then take home your sign after the race!
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
We welcome friendly dogs of all sizes and breeds and their responsible owners. For the safety of your dog and others, female dogs should not be in heat, and please check with your veterinarian to make sure your dog is up-to-date on all of its vaccinations.
- Dogs must be leashed and under control of their owner at all times.
- No retractable leashes, choke chains, or prong collars are allowed.
Event parking will be located at Horizon Events Center (2100 NW 100th St, Clive, IA 50325). Look for the people in blue ARL shirts, and they will direct you to a parking spot. Once you have parked, please go to the Iowa Dog Jog registration tent if you have not yet registered for the run/walk.
