Race Information

Held annually in June, Dog Jog is one of Calgary Humane Society's signature fundraising events. The event is crucial in raising funds to support the thousands of animals in need that are cared for each year. The family-friendly, non-competitive walk/run is an event where your canine friend can participate too! The 2.5 km or 5 km course kicks off from the west end of South Glenmore Park - a fantastic staging area for our Barkingville Marketplace. From here the route follows city pathways along the Glenmore Reservoir and loops along the top of the scenic Weaselhead Natural Area, concluding back at the polo field.

Beginner Runner Training Plans

Are you looking to become a runner for the first time? Coming back to running after a hiatus? Our friends at None to Run have created a gradual training plan for beginner runners!

In 3 workouts of 30 minutes or less per week, None to Run will take you from ground zero to running comfortably for 25 minutes straight.

None to Run is different from most beginner plans:

  • Focuses on running time. NOT distance or pace.
  • Includes simple strength and mobility workouts. No equipment required.
  • Progresses slowly to decrease the chances of getting injured.

If you can't currently run for more than 5-minutes straight without stopping to catch your breath, you're in the right place.
