The gun will go off, and they'll dart out of the blocks like there's no tomorrow.
That is, of course, for those participants who plan to run in the Running of the Dawgs Saturday at the Northern Lehigh Athletic Stadium, Slatington.
The 10th annual 5K Run/Fitness Walk is sponsored by the Northern Lehigh Education Foundation. Registration is at 7:30 a.m., followed by the 1-mile Fun Run at 8:30 a.m.
Then, at 9 a.m., the 5K Run/Walk will be held, followed by a post-race, where there will be awards, a drawing, and dog-costume judging.
