The UGA Alumni Association
invites you to participate in the
Seventh Annual Dawg Trot 5K
Join hundreds of UGA alumni and friends for a scenic walk, jog or run across the University of Georgia's beautiful campus. Athens' largest 5K has become an annual tradition, providing an early-spring opportunity for Bulldogs from near and far to journey back to Athens. Don't miss this opportunity to see campus like you never have before!

An official Run & See Georgia Grand Prix race, participants can use their Dawg Trot time to qualify for an earlier start time at the Peachtree Road Race and other races across the country.

Awards will be presented in the following categories:
  • Overall Male/Female
  • Overall Male/Female Masters
  • Top three in age groups (ten and under through 75 and over
T-shirts will be given to participants who register before midnight on Thursday, March 13 and to walk-up registrants on a first-come, first-served basis.

Refreshments will be provided after the race. The course begins at Stegeman Coliseum and ends in the parking lot adjacent to the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. Click here to view a map of the course.

Before and after (and perhaps during) your run, be sure to capture photos and tag them #dawgsonthemove. The UGA Alumni Association will be posting and sharing participants' content throughout the morning via Instagram and Twitter.

Strollers and wagons are allowed. For the safety of race participants and your pets, dogs are prohibited.
