This New Year's Day race has a little something for everyone with a competitive 5K race, 5K walking category, fun and festive formal wear race division (pajamas allowed), weight challenge division, and kid's fun run. Come on out and celebrate your New Year with us! A portion of the proceeds raised from this event will go to the Williamsburg YMCA. All 5K runners receive a race T-shirt, post-race refreshments, and festive post-race awards ceremony. Kid's 1 Mile participants receive a finisher medal and post-race refreshments.

Hair of the DoG 5K will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, and it will be moving from its former location in Virginia Beach to Merchants Square in Williamsburg. We feel that the race is a perfect fit as it will finish on DoG Street and will be hosted by the DoG Street Pub. We’ve teamed up with the R.F. Wilkinson Family YMCA as our charity, and we are co-promoting our event with First Night Williamsburg to provide New Year’s revelers with a healthy resolution run to round out their New Year’s celebration in Williamsburg.
