About This Activity


General Info:

Join us for our fourth annual walk/run supporting the Stayton Police Department's K9 Program. This is a dog friendly race for friendly dogs, although you don't have to bring one to participate. Our courses are beginner to intermediate in level and include street and trail running.

Why Participate?

Your entry fee is benefitting a great local cause in the Stayton community.  Walk or Run the 5k or 9k. We will have prizes for the top three finishers in each distance. We have lots of sponsors providing prizes, raffles and items for the first 300 registrant's goodie bags. Our tech shirts are stylish and fun. (Register before March 19th to make sure you get one!) This has consistently been a fun event year after year. We take the feedback from each year to make the next one better.

Health Fair

Join us for the local health fair for dogs and humans from 9am to 1pm race day.
