Humans and canines come together for the University Commons 5K-9, a morning event brimming with races and parades in support of pet charities throughout Gainesville. The day commences with an 8 a.m. onsite registration, followed by a breakfast feast supplied by Mi Apa Latin Café, then a 5K (3.1-mile) race at 9 a.m. Participants can accompany their own pooches or bask in the general air of flying fur for a one-mile pup run and dog parade at 10 a.m., promptly segueing into the 10:30 a.m. awards and pet superlatives ceremony. From 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., a pet expo coincides with the racing and parading festivities, assembling professionals who preside over veterinary clinics, dog daycare centers, pet spas, and canine finishing schools to teach dogs proper annunciation.
