Tails to Trails: Four Paw 5K

TRAVERSE CITY — Mark your calendars for May 18 for the fourth annual Tails to Trails, a four-paw, 5K on the scenic Vasa Pathway for dogs and their owners.

It is a unique opportunity to mingle with other dog owners and enjoy a fun run or walk with your favorite canine friend.

Dogs will receive a goodie bag with treats and promotional dog items. Pets and Peeps Photography will take complimentary professional photos that can be downloaded after the event. Prizes for top finishing owners and dogs from D.O.G. Bakery, along with other great prizes from local pet-friendly businesses, will be given away. All proceeds from Tails to Trails benefit TART Trails, Inc.

There are many walking and running events in the area, but Tails to Trails is geared for dog lovers and their four-pawed friends.

To register, visit or stop by the TART Trails office at 415 S. Union Street in Old Town. Pre-registration is $15 for individuals and $25 for families through May 17. Day-of-event registration will be $20 and $30, respectively. On race day, registration opens at 8 a.m., with the fun run/walk starting at 9 a.m. Pets must be on a leash at all times and owners are responsible for picking up after their pets. This is not a professionally timed event, but there will be a race clock.

To access the Vasa Pathway trailhead, take US 31 to Bunker Hill Rd, turn right on Bartlett and left into the trailhead parking area.

For more information please contact Arianne Whittaker, Marketing and Outreach Director for TART Trails, at 231-941-4300 or
