Event Navigation

Going to the Dogs has never felt this good! 

A portion of this event’s proceeds benefits our featured charity, Mutts of the Mitten.

Epic Races invites you to the first annual Mutts of the Mitten Virtual 5K. Both Epic Races and Mutts of the Mitten wholeheartedly believe in exploring our surroundings, for both humans and our 4-legged friends and this inaugural event invites you to get moving and have some fun! Grab your own dog or maybe volunteer to take a dog in rescue out on the trails.

Steps to Take, Strides to Run

To participate in the Mutts of the Mitten Virtual 5K, follow these steps:

  • Register for this event at RunSignUp; deadline to register is December 1, 2017!
  • Head to your chosen park and go for your Mutts of the Mitten 5K (or jog, walk, skip, dance… anything on your own two feet) between October 10th and December 20th.
  • Tell us about your Mutts of the Mitten 5K! Head to the 2017 Mutts of the Mitten Virtual 5K Facebook page, “join” the event if you haven’t already, then upload a photo of your GPS tracker showing your mileage and time, share a selfie where you ran or walked, or post a comment about your run or walk and tag the park. You can also post your photos on Instagram and tag us (@muttsofthemitten & @epicraces) or tweet about it on Twitter and tag us (@epicraces). There is no need to report your run to us! Letting us know about your Mutts of the Mitten 5K via social media is preferred, but not mandatory!
    All swag will be sent out by December 20, 2017!

Adventure is better together!
To help get you started, Mutts of the Mitten will be hosting some ‘live’ events for humans and well-behaved dogs:

November 12 – Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti

For more details and more information on the specific “live” events, follow us on facebook, or email.

Virtual Run, Real Swag!

Every Mutts of the Mitten 5k participant will receive a gorgeous 2017 finisher’s medal with removable charm for your mutt! , along with a Mutts of the Mitten 5K T-shirt. Choose from unisex charcoal heather or women’s fitted in plum.

All Mutts of the Mitten 5K swag will be mailed out by December 20, 2017.
