Dozer's Dash to Debut in 2012

Here’s your chance to be Top Dog! New to the 2012 Maryland Half Marathon is Dozer’s Dash, an eight-mile race-within-a-race named in honor of Dozer the Dog, a Goldendoodle who made national news after accidentally joining the runners at mile five in the 2011 Maryland Half Marathon.

Dozer’s Dash will begin at the five-mile mark, where Dozer made his now-famous entrance into the race in 2011. Male and female runners having the lowest times in this leg of the 2012 Maryland Half Marathon will be awarded medals of honor and named Top Dog of Dozer’s Dash.

Participation in Dozer’s Dash is INCLUDED as part of your race registration fee.  

*Please note that while dogs will be permitted to join Dozer at the race that morning in cheering on runners along the course when accompanied by an owner and on a leash, for the safety of the animals and our runners, they will NOT be allowed to run in the 2012 Maryland Half Marathon or Dozer's Dash.
