Bring out your four legged friend as this race truly is "for the dogs". This year's event will feature 10K, 5K and 1.7 Mile distances and will take place at Rio Vista Park to benefit AZK9 Rescue.

This event is completely dog friendly, complete with doggy pools at each aid station!

The Running For the Bulls event serves as a fundraiser for AZK9.  AZK9 was founded by a group of people who wanted to make a difference in the lives of companion animals in Maricopa County. The members of AZK9 give their time, passion, and knowledge to offer proactive solutions to address the pet overpopulation. AZK9 focuses in three main areas; sterilization, education, and rescue of companion animals in need. To support their amazing work please considering giving at their donation page here!
