Presented by Portland Design Works & Benefiting The Pixie Project
For the fifth year in a row, racers and spectators will get a chance to race their dogs (on-leash and sans bikes) in an all-for-fun doggie dash race on a shortened version of the cyclocross course! At previous editions, we've had up to 100 dogs racing across various categories, so expect a wild spectacle of four-legged fun. And we'll have very cool Portland Design Works for the three best dog costumes and the winners in each category.
To find out what all the barking and tail-wagging is about, check out the videos below!
- Co-ed Open - 5' lap
- Clydesdale (> 50lbs) - 5' lap

- Lap Dogs (< 15lbs) - 5' lap
- Junior /Puppies (U1) *NEW CATEGORY!*
Registration & Schedule:
While the doggie dash is free, we encourage participants to make a small (or large) donation to local non-profit animal adoption and rescue center The Pixie Project. All dog racers must sign a waiver and register their dog/owner team between 10:30am and 12:45pm
at the PDW Doggie Race tent, where they will receive a dog race bib number.
Staging starts at 1pm. STAGGERED START OF ALL DOG CATEGORIES AT 1:00PM SHARP!
The dog course will be about
0.5 mile long and will include barriers and other dog-friendly features.
For the safety of the dogs and spectators, no bikes in this race and all dogs must be on-leash.
