Ag Vets and Running Pets

Faster than a speeding beagle, more powerful than a labrador retriever, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! We are Ag Vets and Running Pets!

Sponsored by Nestle Purina 


Eh, who are we kidding? We probably are not actually faster than your beagle or stronger than your lab, but we are a group of people, 'club' if you will, made up of vet students, professors, grad students, and clinicians at the vet school with at least one thing in common: we run.  It's a beautiful thing, this running that has brought us all together, however this club is about some much more than running.  It's about people getting out there, getting their pets out there, it's about coming together, building a community, building friendships, being active, getting fit, spreading the love, finding the joy, and really when it all comes down to it, having fun!

So this is how the club works:  We plan to run as a group every Monday and Thursday night at 8:00pm.  Meet on the University side of Room 201.  Once a week, FREE PURINA SWAG (clicky pens,highlighters, leashes, and all that good stuff) will be distributed to everyone. Every time you show up to run your name will also be put in a drawing to take place at the end of the semester for two GRAND PRIZE gift certificates.  The more you show up, the more chances you have of winning.  But it doesn't stop there!  After coming to four runs, you get an AWESOME TEAM SHIRT.  Once a semester we'll do a club race and Purina sponsors a portion of the entry fee!  The club race this semester will be the Central Texas Warrior Dash on Sunday, November 20th.

**For those of you who are looking for a group to run with but don't want to participate in the Warrior Dash, feel free to come running (or walking)every Monday and Thursday night at 8:00pm and get FREE PURINA SWAG! **
