The Aquaphor New York City Triathalon will house the 6th annual Animal Medical Center 5-Mile Doggy Dash at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 14, in Central Park.

The race will start in Central Park, just off the 72nd Street Transverse, west of Cherry Hill and will finish on Dead Road, west of the Bandshell, just off the 72nd Street Transverse.

During the race, 34 dogs and their owners will race to be the first to cross the finish line and win the, “Red Fire Hyrdant” trophy. The 5-mile course includes a mandatory vet check provided by veterinarians and trained technicians from The Animal Media Center for each dog prior to the race, in the middle and once more at the end of the race to help ensure each animal begins and remains healthy throughout the course.
