The Two Shilling Mile begins at 7 a.m.; the other in-person events start at 7:30 a.m.

Runners start on Prince George Street, pass the Governor’s Palace and the Colonial Capitol building, and finish the final 800 meters on what Franklin D. Roosevelt referred to as “the most storied avenue in all of America,” Duke of Gloucester Street.

By registering for Run the D.O.G., you support Habitat in multiple ways. A portion of your registration fee will go directly to Habitat. You can sign up as an individual and fundraise on your own, create your own team or join an existing team.

Race proceeds will be used to build a home for a family to buy through Habitat’s first-time homebuyer program. Qualifying families with low to moderate incomes who have excellent credit and steady employment purchase a home with a zero-interest equivalent mortgage and payments are then recycled to build more Habitat homes.

We help as many families as we can, but the lack of decent and affordable housing remains a critical problem in our area.
