Hot Dog Run


Saturday, May 4, 2024


5K & 1 Mile Run/Walk + Pet Costume Competition


Midland College (3600 N Garfield St Midland, TX US 79705)


Hot Dog Run is Midland’s favorite dog-friendly race that celebrates walking/running with four-legged friends! Hot Dog Run has been gaining momentum since it started in 2015. Hot Dog Run is an important fundraiser for Midland Humane Coalition, who help rescue our community’s homeless pet and give them a second chance. 

Midland Humane Coalition (MHC) believes that there is hope for cats and dogs who are in perfectly good health and have wonderful personalities to have a brighter, happier future. And they are working to give them just that - a second chance, a new path. 

MHC is proud to say they are a no-kill facility. Their ultimate goal is to help make Midland become no-kill community!
