If you have a dog, odds are you take him/her with you when you go for your morning or evening jog. You enjoy the company on your jog while your dog is ecstatic to get outside and run. It is a win-win situation! 


So, what if the concept of taking your dog out for a morning jog could apply to a distance race? That's how the Paw-A-Thon 5K was born. 


Hosted by the students and faculty of the Texas Tech University Kinesiology and Sports Management graduate program, the Paw-A-Thon 5K is a 5K race where your running mate is your furry four-legged friend! 


Welcome to your new favorite 5K.
