EVENT DATE & TIME
Saturday, May 8, 2021 • 8:30 am • the first wave will be sent out at 8:30 am.
In order to help alleviate course crowding, we will utilize a rolling wave start. Runners have been seeded into starting waves based on their self-times. Waves will be divided into separate corralled areas providing enough space for runners to stay socially distanced within their wave area while they wait for the race to start. Personal wave arrival and start times will be emailed on Thursday, May 6th.
The first wave will kick off at 8:30 a.m. sharp. Upon direction from staff and volunteers, move forward and position yourself on one of the cones. Cones will be divided into rows and will be spaced out to ensure social distancing. Participants will be directed to the start/finish line by our staff and will be sent off two at a time, 10 seconds apart. There will be no congregating at the start/finish line area.

OFFICIAL CHARITY - FOR THE LOVE OF DOG
For The Love of Dog is a unique, 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 2004 by a group of like-minded Rottweiler lovers who wanted to avoid the politics of other rescues. Over the course of time (and Hurricane Katrina), the group included the very-misunderstood bully breeds on a limited basis, as well as an occasional mixed breed, and even a kitten! For the Love of Dog is funded solely on donations, adoption fees, grants, and fundraisers. The organization also receives funding through weekly BINGO events under the New Hampshire State Lottery’s Charitable Gaming Division. The group has no paid staff and all intake, adoption, fundraising, fostering, and administrative tasks are done by volunteers. To learn more visit https://www.4theloveofdog.org/
