Hair of the Dog Run/Walk at Tucson Country Club
January 1, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$25 – $35
The HAIR OF THE DOG Run/Walk (HOTD), benefiting the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, is a New Year’s Day destination, not to be missed. And for so many good reasons!
– For those that stayed-up to ring in the New Year, no problem: the HOTD does not start until 11am!
– For those looking for an 8k (5-mile) PR: cool temps and a mostly flat course will make for fast running!
– For those kicking-off New Year’s Resolutions for a fit 2019: this is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself in a beautiful setting with a supportive community of family and friends!
– For those seeking to squeeze in as much fun as possible during the Holidays, there’s Live Music, Exercise Endorphins, Cool Swag, a Fur-baby Race, and Hair of the Dog — because we love a good running party!
– And for those that enjoy spending time with their canine companions: Party with your Pooch and do the One-mile Doggie Dash!
