This year, VWK9 is hosting a 2-day event, with Biathlon Festivities on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, May 18th, our Biathloners will storm the 4-mile course, enjoy a festival atmosphere with vendors, southern food, adult beverages, live music and entertainment, followed by a nighttime band -Spectators and Biathloners can camp overnight in RVs or tents a few hundred yards from the biathlon area. And on Sunday, May 19th the races will continue, and we will round out our traditional fun-filled weekend with a mass group” Thousand Dog” photo. This is a weekend of fun that you don’t want to miss!
WHY WE STARTED THE EVENT
This event is not for profit. Your donation/sponsorship money helps us provide this event for all canines and their humans, while also allowing for donation to several not for profit organizations that support the bonds we share with “man’s best friend”. We are hopeful that 2019 sponsorships will provide us an opportunity to Donate School Safety Dog’s in support of several Alabama School Districts, that will support ongoing National School Safety Program Initiatives to deter weapons and active shooter events in our Nation’s Schools.
We invite you to volunteer, register for the race, set up a vendor booth, or become one of our Main Event Sponsors. Our numbers have grown each year! With nearly 5 months left until our START time we already have 500+ paid Registrants, with an additionally estimated 500-750 that will sign up prior to Event weekend!
We Sincerely hope that you will consider sponsorship/donation to this heartwarming event. We encourage you to follow us on our Facebook Page or at USCanineBiathalon.com.
