RICHMOND, Va. -- The 20th annual Dog Jog and 5K Run, benefiting the Richmond SPCA, is this Saturday, March 26.

"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 and our first ever "Little Paws" Fun Run," officials said. "Throughout the morning, we'll host our pet-friendly vendor fair at our Robins-Starr Humane Center that's packed full of fun activities for the whole family and features a Kids’ Fun Zone and Pets’ Fun Zone."

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.
