The Paddle with your Pooch Boat Race is Back!

PLEASE NOTE: We have closed the online registration for Paddle with Your Pooch, but *WE WILL TAKE WALK-UP REGISTRATIONS THE DAY OF THE RACE!

The 14th annual Paddle with your Pooch dog-and-master boat race will be held at the Boathouse on Sunday, October 15, 2017. It’s time to bring your furry friends and test your paddling prowess on Post-Dispatch Lake in Forest Park. Each heat is limited to 22 boats, so sign up now to reserve your spot in the race. Don’t have a dog? No worries! Come on out and cheer for your favorite dog-and-master team. We hope to see you there!

A portion of the proceeds from the race will be donated to Forest Park Forever for maintaining the beauty of the park.

The entry fee is $40 per dog-and-master team, which includes one t-shirt. (Maximum occupancy per paddleboat is three humans and one dog.) Entries will be accepted on a first-come, first serve basis. Registrations will be confirmed by e-mail. Additional entries will be placed on a waiting list in the order they are received. Entry fees are non-refundable. All dog-and-master teams must be lined up 15 minutes prior to the race, or you will be dropped from your heat.
