NEW PHILADELPHIA (WJER) (Sept. 8, 2023) – Kent State Tuscarawas is inviting everyone to bring their family members with two or four legs down to the campus for a running fundraiser to benefit scholarships there this weekend.
Director of Philanthropy Chad Conrad says the campus is hosting the self-timed Flash Dash 5k run and half-mile walk, with or without dogs, Saturday. Dogs must be kept on a leash.
He says it attracts competitive racers who run with their dogs from throughout the region.
Conrad says the event also includes the “Doggie Fest,” which features furry paw art, a K9-owner lookalike judging contest, a puppy photo booth, and other activities.
Race day registration for the 5k is $20, beginning at 9 a.m. Race time is 10 a.m.
