BEREA, Ohio – The Cleveland Browns on Saturday, Oct. 17 will host "Dawg Pound Dash," presented by University Hospitals, at FirstEnergy Stadium, which will serve as the starting point and finish line for all Browns fans who register for the team's first themed 5K "fun run." Open registration for the event begins Thursday on www.ClevelandBrowns.com and the Browns Mobile App.
One day prior to the Browns-Broncos game in Week 6, members of the Dawg Pound will run a course that covers 3.1 miles of Downtown Cleveland, where stretches will feature themed activation areas such as dance zones, party zones, cheer zones and more. Race members will finish at FirstEnergy Stadium, where a celebratory tailgate on Dawg Pound Drive will occur.
Everyone who signs up for Dawg Pound Dash will also receive an official Dawg Pound Dash t-shirt, a bone-shaped Dawg Pound headband, an individual race bib and a finisher's medal. Additionally, individual participants and teams will have a chance to win Browns prizes for the best costume, largest team and more.
All of the Dawg Pound are encouraged to participate in a fundraiser benefitting the Cleveland Browns Foundation. Registrants who create a personal race fundraising page will receive prizes when reaching specific donation levels, including on-field recognition during the Browns' Week 8 home game vs. Arizona for individuals who raise $1,000 or more.
