RICHMOND, Va. -- The 22nd annual Dog Jog and 5K Run, benefiting the Richmond SPCA, is Saturday, March 26 at the Robins-Starr Humane Center on Hermitage Road.

"The day begins with a chip-timed 5K (3.1-mile) for people only, followed by our Little Paws Fun Run for kids ages 4 to 10, and then a leisurely 1-mile Dog Jog," organizers said. "Our Block Party, featuring live music, special performances, beer/wine trucks and much more, kicks off at noon and is free to attend."

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

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

Proceeds from the event benefit the pets in the care of the Richmond SPCA.
