The RunGo Dash for Dogs, an annual dog run around Stanley Park, is returning to Vancouver for its 2019 event.
It’s a friendly, non-competitive race for canines and their companions, that takes place at Stanley Park on Sunday, February 24.

The race consists of a guided 10 km, 5 km, or 2 km, run or walk around the beautiful trails of Stanley Park.
Post-race activities include a pancake breakfast and music. BC Guide Dogs will also be there with puppies, and you can even do a mini blindfold walk with a Guide Dog.
Most importantly, 100% of the proceeds from the event go towards BC and Alberta Guide Dogs.
So far, organizers are expecting over 400 participants and 200 dogs dashing around Stanley Park. More than $12,000 has already been raised for the event.
Dogs of all ages are welcome (including guide dogs), though they must be on a leash and under control at all times.
Entry to the event starts at $20 depending on race and those without dogs are also welcome to join. You can register for the run online.
