When trail runner Craig Slagel adopted Dynasty in 2012, his friends told him he should have her guide his runs so he wouldn’t get lost. Dynasty, a retired guide dog was the inspiration behind Slagel’s startup RunGo–a running app to guide runs in new locations. RunGo is now used by runners worldwide as one of the top accessible running apps for visually impaired athletes. On Sunday February 24, RunGo will host the fifth annual Dash for Dogs as a fundraiser for BC and Alberta Guide Dogs. Choose from a 10K, 5K, or 2K run or walk through Stanley Park trails in Vancouver, B.C.
Guide dogs and good dogs are welcome, dogs must be on leash and under control at all times for the safety of the working guide dogs.
