Trot your dogs

Registration still available for runners, dog costume contest

PARKER COUNTY — There’s still time to register and take part in Saturday’s annual Hot Dog Trot.

The fourth annual event, sponsored by Wright Chiropractic, takes place at Parker County Physical Therapy, 879 Eureka in Weatherford. Events include a 1K and 5K run/walk, costume contests and more.

 The event benefits The Society for Organ Donor Awareness, an organization which wants to spread the word about the need for organ donors.

Those who want to take part can register online before 11:59 p.m. Nov. 1, drop off registration forms at Wright Chiropractic, 702 Eureka, or register beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday at the race site. Registration runs until 8:15 a.m. The 1K race begins at 8 a.m. with the 5K starting at 8:30 a.m.

Runner packets can be picked up at Hibbett Sports, 225 Adams Dr. from 4 to 7 p.m. Nov. 1 and at Fort Worth Running Company, 2401 W. 7th St. in Fort Worth, from 2:30 to 5:45 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2. Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers in several age divisions along with overall and Masters divisions. Top corporate and family teams will also be eligible for awards.

Spokesman Armand Fisher says registrations are running “kind of” slow right now but he says there is normally a large day of race sign up at the site. Registration is $25 for each runner. Dog participants, which must be accompanied by a human, are $6 each.

Registration for the dog talent show and costume contest are $6 each with the online deadline at Nov. 1 at 11:59 p.m. Spokeswoman Diana Fisher said registrations are going slowly for that as well. The costume contest is at 10 a.m. with the talent show to begin at 10:30 a.m.

Registrations for both of those events can be done the day of the race or by visiting athlete360.com.
