Pet Policy at SLTC Events:
The St. Louis Track Club is in agreement with the Road Runners Club of America that no dogs, except service animals, participate in running/walking events.
RRCA Guidelines for Dogs at/or in Events The Road Runners Club of America strongly recommends that group run leaders and event organizers adopt a “no dogs/pets allowed” policy for anyone participating in group training runs or organized events. Furthermore, event organizers should have a “no dogs/pets allowed” policy for volunteers, spectators, and participants in the start and finish areas of an event. Only service dogs should be allowed at an event with a participant or spectator, and an event organizer may ask if a dog is a service animal.
Thank you for abiding by these guidelines.
