RICHMOND, Va. — The 17th annual Dog Jog and 5K Run, benefiting the Richmond SPCA,  is this Saturday at 8:30 a.m.

“The day begins with a chip-timed 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk for people only, followed by a dog-friendly, leisurely one-mile Dog Jog,” officials said. “Throughout the morning, we host our pet-friendly vendor fair at our Robins-Starr Humane Center, featuring a Kids’ Fun Zone and a pets’ Fun Zone packed full of fun activities for the whole family.”

The first 1,000 registered participants will receive a T-shirt and goodie bag full of exciting gifts.

Award-winning WTVR CBS 6 anchor and reporter Greg McQuade will serve as emcee.
