CityDog's Muttmazing Race

It's the Amazing Race...doggie style! CityDog Magazine is hosting the first-ever Muttmazing Race at the rockin' South Lake Union Block Party, Friday, August 10 from noon to 7pm to raise money for the Seattle Animal Shelter.

Dog lovers and their furry, four-legged companions will compete in a variety of challenges such as "sit and get lei'd," "the puppy tunnel of love," "sit pretty for a picture," "find the treat" and more! The human/canine team with the best overall time wins! Challenges are designed to be fun first, challenging second and ALL dogs are welcome.

Only the individual challenges are timed, so in between you can can quench your thirst in the beer garden, check out the vendor booths, sample foods from neighborhood restaurants, hang out in the special dog area, listen to live music including local favorite Harvey Danger -- all as part of the South Lake Union Block Party. The festivities end with an outdoor movie screening of Little Miss Sunshine.

The cost to compete in the Muttmazing Race is just $10.00 with all of the proceeds going to the Seattle Animal Shelter's Help the Animals Fund.
