Dog ‘n Jog is a fun family event surrounding a 10K, 5K, and 1.5K run, held annually at Kansas State University’s Veterinary Health Center. This year it will be put on by the College of Veterinary Medicine Class of 2018 on April 2nd, 2017 and the proceeds will go to Kansas Specialty Dog Service (KSDS) Assistance Dogs, Inc.
KSDS is an Assistance Dogs International (ADI) accredited 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides guide dogs for the visually impaired, service dogs to assist individuals with physical disabilities and facility dogs to assist professionals in the field of education, counseling, health care, retirement or the legal system. The KSDS team breeds their own carefully selected lines of Labrador and Golden Retrievers and trains them from puppyhood socialization up to assistance dog graduation. The program graduated their first class of service dogs in 1991 and now they place assistance dogs throughout the country at no cost to an individual in need. We are excited to support them in their efforts to promote independence and inclusion with their highly-trained canine assistants and we hope you will join us for this fun fundraising event!

Pounding the pavement is great and all, but there’s something to be said for single track. And at Randolph State Park, just a little ways north of Manhattan, Kansas, you’ll find some of the best (and most technical) single track trails in the MHK area. The fall colors and panoramic views of Tuttle Creek Lake and the Flint Hills make for a perfectly lovely romp through the woods. But with roller coaster hills, dizzying switchbacks, and sometimes rocky footing, it’s no walk in the park… and Randolph will try its best to take its revenge.
All entrants receive a soft-style long sleeve t-shirt, and all finishers get a Randolph’s Revenge tall boy pint glass… and yep, we’ll have plenty of cold drinks at the finish line to fill ’em up. We’ll also have a post-race brunch for runners: biscuits ‘n gravy, Varsity Donuts, and fresh fruit.
