The Canine Classic has gone virtual!

May 23 – 30, 2020

Registration now open

Due to COVID-19 social distancing and Colorado’s stay-at-home orders, MESA will be hosting the 18th annual Canine Classic as a virtual event. You can complete your 5K run or walk on your own any time between May 23 – 30. A canine companion is not required but highly encouraged. Submitting a time for your 5K distance is optional.




With many of us working from home, COVID-19 has been a field day for dogs. This spring’s Canine Classic gives you and your pet an opportunity to put all your daily quarantine training toward a good cause.

All proceeds from the Canine Classic support MESA’s programs, including a 24-hour hotline, victim advocate services and prevention education. For a $20 registration fee, you can support MESA’s programming, enjoy a run or walk with your dog, and have a chance to win great prizes. 

Even though we can’t be together to celebrate with our dogs at the Boulder Rez, we hope you’ll help us continue the light-hearted tradition of the Canine Classic. Pick your favorite 5K route, grab a leash, and be sure to document your run or walk using #CanineClassic2020. 

Want to wear a bib as you walk or run? Download your bib from your confirmation email and choose a number, word, or phrase as your bib ID. Creativity pays off; there is a prize package for the participant with the best social media post showing off their bib! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CanineClassic2020 to be entered to win.

All participants will be eligible to win prizes. Prize categories include fastest runner and walker with and without a dog, best dog and guardian selfie, oldest dog photo, best dog-guardian lookalike photo, best dog trick video, best social media post with your race bib, and random prize drawings.
