Bring your Fido (or don’t, we’ll leave that up to you) and join us for a run/walk in beautiful downtown Madison. Your registration includes a sombrero (instead of a race bib – you or Fido can wear it), a Tex Tubb’s Taco or nacho bar (they’re still deciding what to serve), 1 beer or soda, and some festive music. Cinco de Fido is all about having a great time while engaging in some exercise with other animal lovers and raising funds for a very important organization. Pre-registration is required.
