Browns host "Dawg Pound Dash" at FirstEnergy Stadium

The Cleveland Browns will host "Dawg Pound Dash," at FirstEnergy Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 17. FirstEnergy Stadium will serve as the starting point and finish line for all Browns fans who register for the team's first themed 5K "fun run."

Open registration begins Thursday on and on the Browns Mobile App.

Members of the Dawg Pound will run a course that covers 3.1 miles of Downtown Cleveland, where stretches will feature themed activation areas such as dance zones, party zones, cheers zones and more. At the finish line, there will be a celebratory tailgate on Dawg Pound Drive.

Everyone who signs up for Dawg Pound Dash will also receive an official Dawg Pound Dash t-shirt, a bone-shaped Dawg Pound headband, an individual are bib and a finisher's medal. Individual participates and teams will have a chance to win Browns prizes for the best costume, largest team and more.

All of the Dawg Pound are encouraged to participate in a fundraiser benefiting the Cleveland Browns Foundation. Registrants who create a personal race fundraising page will receive prizes when reaching specific donation levels, including on-field recognition during the Browns' Week 8 home game vs. Arizona for individuals who raise $1,000 or more.
