    I don’t really know if this is the world’s most awesome dog themed 5K as their slogan suggests but compared to 2 prior dog themed 5Ks I’ve done in CA before I was a Racerave regular, this race was exceptionally better. I was planning to be in NH this weekend for Smuttynose Rockfest and wanted to run a warm-up 5K on Saturday and was excited to find this one since I love animals. I know I have cats but I love dogs too, cats are just easier when you travel to races almost every weekend. This is located in Nashua, NH about 45 minutes from my parents house. It started at a Stadium in Nashua. Packet pick-up was the morning of the race. It included a really nice, quality and beautiful pinkish orange colored tech shirt. Great shirt for a 5K! You are also supposed to get a medal at the end but unfortunately they were stuck in the mail again but it should be mailed. I will update the swag after I receive the medal but put it at 3 sneakers for now. There is a spring and a fall race and you get extra swag if you do both. They also give a medal to the dogs that run this but the dog medals were also stuck in the mail. There was about 150 runners. For the start there was an arch and a timing mat and runners lined up 2 by 2 and went to space things out. It worked pretty well. The course was fun but nothing special. The first about 1 mile is on a road that is coned off. One side of the road is scenic with views of a pond and park and the other side is extremely unscenic with views of businesses. You then go through a school parking lot and into a park. This part is more scenic but nothing spectacular. The first half through the park is on a paved path and the second part is on non-technical trail. It is a pretty easy course. There were no true hills just some rollers and about 60 feet of elevation gain. It wasn’t a particularly fast course though as the trail slowed me a bit and it was a bit long. My Garmin said 3.25 miles though longer is better than shorter. It was cute to run with the dogs. All the dogs were well behaved and the start kept everyone spread out. My time was fine but this was a warm-up run so I wasn’t going for a PR or anything. I was embarrassed to be beat by a dachshund. As I said the medals didn’t come in but they did send an email with your finishing time. There was a solid post race snack selection with granola bars, rice krispy treats, fruit roll-ups and dog biscuits. Other than the medals getting stuck in the mail, everything went extremely smooth. It was a nice but somewhat generic course. This isn’t something I would go out of the way for but I would definitely do it again if I happened to be in NH. The organization was 5 sneakers though I’m not sure the course was special enough for an overall 5 sneakers but if the medal is spectacular I may change my overall rating.
