AMK9’s U.S. Canine Biathlon
May 20 - May 21$60
AMK9 is excited to announce the 2017 U.S. Canine Biathlon®! This year, AMK9 is offering a two-day event for our biathlon family. On Saturday, May 20th our biathloners will storm the 3.5-mile course. Saturday evening you will enjoy a live concert, beer, and BBQ in the biathlon area. Those that are able to camp overnight in tents and RVs are encouraged to do so. (Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org), there are hotels in the area for those who need their comforts. Finally, on Sunday morning, we will round out our fun weekend with a 1000 Dog March, group photograph, and Biathlon Breakfast.
Held at AMK9’s world class 320-acre canine training facility in Anniston, Alabama, The U.S. Canine Biathlon® was created not only for those who love the challenge of obstacle racing, but their canine companions. This 5K event features more than 20+ purpose-built obstacles over varied terrain including forest, sand, and water.
The U.S. Canine Biathlon® is open to all types of Handler-Canine teams including Civilian pets, Military working dogs, or Police Dog teams. In addition, the race is open to challengers and thrill seekers of all ages and experience levels. Scores will be determined not only by course time, but also criteria based on the age of both the runner and the canine partner. The U.S. Canine Biathlon® is also open to individual entries who wish to complete without a canine partner or as a group.
Following the race, top scores will be presented at an awards presentation, along with entertainment and music, vendor booths, and BBQ (because who doesn’t love BBQ).
So, the question is, do you and your canine partner have what it takes? Accept the challenge and register for the U.S. Canine Biathlon® now! Early registration is $50 until April 20th. After that the fee goes up to $60. The entry fee includes a T-shirt, Biathlon Medallion, food, and drink.
