May 22, 2011 Start Line
In 2008 we organized our Inaugural Hair of the Dog 5K in hopes of generating much needed funds to support pet rescue.  It was a great success and we decided we wanted to do it every year.  This event is unlike any other local event . . . not only do we offer a 5K Run/Walk but because the event is held at a winery we are also able to offer wine tasting and wine by the glass/bottle.  Each registered runner receives a free wineglass which entitles them to their first wine tasting free (must be 21 or older!).  But wait that's not all.  Because this event is for the sole purposes of helping homeless, abandoned and neglected pets we also allow you to run or walk with your dog.  The first 1,000 pre-registered runners get a goody bag packed with all sorts of goodies.  Please join us for this event -- you won't regret it!

We look forward to meeting you at the race.  You do not have to register to race in order to come to the event.  There is free admission and anyone can come, watch the race and cheer on your favorite runner!  After the race, stay and enjoy Working Dog Winery's Chesterfest Wine Festival.  Free admission for registered runners; $10 admission for all others.
