Murdoch University will be overrun by fitness enthusiasts and their furry canine friends on Sunday 11 August 2013, for the first annual Dog n Jog event.

Murdoch staff members Amy Brine, Heather Stoddart and Sally Fairnie put their pups through their paces.

The event will include an 8km run and a 4km run or walk around the beautiful grounds of the Murdoch University South Street campus.

The event was the brain child of Murdoch University's Sport and Recreation Centre Manager Adrian Fisher and Murdoch Veterinary Student Association President Dorian Lara.

"Each year for the past three years we have held an annual campus fun run for staff and students," Adrian said.

"But this year we decided to do something different by inviting the general community to join as well as their pet pooches.

"Dogs need exercise too and many people love to exercise with their dogs, so it is a great way to get fit and healthy together."

And if you don’t have a dog, don’t let that stop you, everyone is welcome.

Entry to the Dog n Jog is by gold coin donation, with all money raised going to Zero's Animal Rescue Fund (ZARF).

There will be great prizes for first placed male and female, first placed junior male and female and first placed dog.
