K9s United 9K, 5K, & 1-Mile Run
Saturday, January 12, 2019, beginning at 8 a.m. at St. Johns County Ocean Pier
K9s United will host their 5th Annual 9K, 5K, and 1-Mile Fun Run on Saturday, January 12, 2019, at the St. Johns County Ocean Pier in St. Augustine Beach. In addition to the races, there will be activities available for all ages, including K9 demonstrations, music, new K9 photo booth, activities for kids from My Gym, and children's building activities provided by Home Depot.
The event raises funds for K9s United, a not-for-profit organization that was formed in 2015 to honor the service and tragic death of K9 Officer Baron, a member of the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.
Since law enforcement K9s are present at this event, attendees are asked to leave their pets at home.
All runners who have registered by December 29, 2018, are guaranteed to receive a T-shirt of their requested size OR a K9s United dog bandana. Runners who register during the last two weeks before the race will receive a dog bandana in place of a T-shirt as supplies permit.
