Don't like to run alone? No problem, bring out your four legged friend and participate in the 1 mile Doggie Dash. Dog owners of all ages enjoy a relaxing walk or a competitive race with their favorite pet. Designed specifically for dog-owning participants, the Doggie Dash lets you support the Grand Strand Humane Society with your pet by your side. The most important fact is that the net proceeds of this event will benefit the Grand Strand Humane Society. So come on out with your party shoes and support our four legged friends.
100% of net proceeds from the Doggie Dash go to the Grand Strand Humane Society. If you cannot attend this event but you still want to support this great cause, donate here.
Note: This is not a timed event. All dogs on-site during this event will need to be on a leash. Also consider how your dog interacts with other people and dogs. If you have doubts as to the possible behavior of your dog, please just enjoy the Coastal 5K!

All Doggie Dash human participants will need to wear their bib number in order to participate. Race packets for the Doggie Dash can be picked up prior to race day at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, Oct. 19th between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM, or on race morning near the start line starting at 6:00 AM. We suggest picking up on Friday to avoid waiting in line on race morning.
There will be plenty of on site parking at The Market Common. Proceed on Farrow Pkwy and follow the signage and volunteers that will lead you to the parking options near the race site. We recommend arrive early, especially if you have to pick up your packet on race morning.
All Doggie Dash canine participants will receive a Myrtle Beach Doggie Dash bandana!
