There will be volunteers guiding you in the parking areas. Please park in the spot that they assign you. We will fill the parting lot closest to the the starting line first, then we will fill the campground overflow lot, and finally we will park on the road side. The forest road is well traveled so if you park on the shoulder you will need to be completely off the road.
There are flush toilets and additional porta-johns near the registration shelter.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist at our races. If you are interested, please read the list of volunteer role descriptions on the Volunteer Page and click below to volunteer at the Dirty Dog 15k!
A portion of the proceeds from this race go to support the Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association.
