Walk, run, Wag

RunRepeat Editor's Pick AwardThe Iowa Dog Jog is a 5K and 2K run/walk (heck, you can even dance your way along the route) that has been created for dog-lovers and their favorite 4-legged friends!

The Iowa Dog Jog has received an Editors Pick Award for 2018 as a 'Top Dog Friendly Run/Walk in the USA' by RunRepeat.com.

People and pups - don't miss this one. At the Iowa Dog Jog, you'll strengthen your bond and probably also make some new friends along the way! Pick your choice of 2K or 5K route (new this year!), and then enjoy a rockin' dog festival full of fun activities for you and your dog, such as paw-print painting, off-leash dog parks (for big dogs and small dogs), visit with great vendors and rescue groups, dog contests (including a whip cream eating contest...for your dog, not you) and so much more. 

Everything's better with a friend! Create a team event friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.

The Animal Rescue League of Iowa helps thousands of pets and people every year, and it's only possible because of supporters like you. This year we've made it even easier to help homeless pets by allowing you to set-up your personal fundraising page when you register for the event. Even if you can't participate in the Iowa Dog Jog, you can still help us with fundraising to support our mission! For each fundraising milestone you hit, you'll be rewarded with cool prizes!

While fundraising is not required to participate in the Dog Jog, there are lots of cool prizes if you do, and every dollar raised helps the homeless pets at the ARL.
