Welcome to the Doggy Dash 3K

              Thanks for another successful year

The Doggy Dash is a family-friendly charity run/walk event that benefits the Jessamine County Animal Shelter.  Come Support the cause for our four-legged friends.

People are welcome, but not required, to bring their dogs along for the run/walk and festivities that follow.

Participants will be running on a beautifully mowed trail at Camp Nelson Historic Park, passing civil war forts and historic sites. Easy rolling hills, while enjoying the early fall scenery, is one reason this 3K will be great for runners and walkers alike. Check out our Course Map
