5K, 10K, Expo and Activities with, by and for your favorite family member, your pup.

Fri Jun 26 - Sat Jun 27

5K Fun Run, Expo and Activities with, by and for your pup! All proceeds benefit LAPS.

Bring the pooch to Copper for a 5k and then spend the day listening to live music with the Blue Dogs and Aaron Burdett Band. Let Fido roam at the off-leash play area. Stroll through the Dog Gone Vendor Village and then watch the national Dock Dogs diving competition. Wrap up the perfect day with Yappy Hour at Incline or Alpinista patio!

While this is a dog-friendly event, the Copper Community does have a leash law. All dogs must be on a leash, unless in a designated off-leash area.
