Anniston’s OneWorld Canine Obstacle Run Hopes to Create a Bonding Experience for Human and Canine Alike

OneWorld Canine Obstacle Run

Anniston, AL –  What is the OneWorld Canine Obstacle Run? The event is run by teams of owner/dog. Owner/Dog teams will run together on more than 30+ obstacles over the most challenging terrain, including natural and manmade obstacles, dense woodlands, dirt, sand, and water. Held at the 200-acre OneWolrd Pet Resort in Anniston, Alabama [McClellan], The OneWorld Canine Obstacle Run was founded for participants to experience the most rewarding canine bonding experience possible. This 4+ mile event will feature more than 30+ purpose-built obstacles over the toughest terrain. Human Participants and canine participants will bring the very best out of each other to succeed.

The event is open to all types of owners with their canines, including Civilian dog owners, Search & Rescue dog teams, Military working dog teams, and Police Dog teams. In addition, the race is open to challengers and thrill seekers of all ages and experience levels, from 10yrs old to 100yrs old. The overall score and time will be determined by course finish time as a base, then there will be time reductions based on age and that of dog’s age. The OneWorld Canine Obstacle Run is also open to individual entries who wish to complete without a canine partner or those canine teams who wish to take on the course as a group. Some handlers bring two dogs and want to run the course twice – once with each dog.  There will be a Saturday 2nd Run option for those who want to run twice.  Both runs are eligible for awards.
