About This Activity

The 3rd annual Barktoberfest & Rover Romp takes place on a scenic trail at the peak of autumn. It starts on the west end of Roegner Park following the White River Trail to the Kersey Street bridge looping back in the park. You finish running or walking past the vendors cheering you to cross the finish line. The event also includes music, dog contests, demonstrations, kids zone, and specialty vendors plus entertainment, raffles and pet licensing. This not a competitive race but a leisurely run or stroll with your dog for the 5K or 3K distance.

Register early to ensure a spot and help us raise funds for the lost, homeless and abandoned animals in our community.
