Dog Jog

What is Dog Jog?

Dog Jog is an untimed 5k fun run/walk to benefit Blue Mountain Humane Society held the first Sunday in May. Everyone, of all ages, is welcome to attend. Participants can come with or without dogs. Don’t have a dog? Walk a shelter dog!

The first Dog Jog was put together in 2014 by two Walla Walla High School students as a small fundraising project. It has since grown to be one of BMHS’s most popular fundraisers with hundreds of participants, more than 100 dogs in attendance, and the generous support of 30+ sponsors.

Where is Dog Jog?

Dog Jog begins and ends in the Walla Walla Community College Athletic Complex Parking Lot off of Tausick Way in Walla Walla. Participants are welcome to park in the lot and then visit the Barking Lot vendors before the event kicks off.

What is the Barking Lot?

The Barking Lot is our pre and post event space to grab some breakfast, get hydrated and have some fun! There will be activities and vendor booths to peruse before and after the event. First Aid and restrooms will also be located in the Barking Lot.
