Love Running With My Dog - 2013 Race
By: Jennifer Cobb - (Taft, TN)
GREAT RACE! Flat course with plenty of trees around for a break from the sun and heat. Well organized. It is wonderful to have a race that will allow your pet, that practices with you everyday. They also provide water for the dogs and as well as the owners. MTSU is a beautiful campus.
