Run for Glory & Rainbow Run
Chairperson: Katherine Shogren firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline: April 1, 2023
Event Date: Monday, May 8
This event is being held by the American Belgian Tervuren Club (ABTC) National Specialty 2023 to recognize our beloved retired and passed agility dogs. These events will be held Monday, May 8, 2023 during the Terv only agility trial.
Run for Glory is for retired dogs only, regardless of how long they have been retired. The course is based on novice JWW obstacles, with bars set at the handler’s height choice or left on the ground. Any obstacles can be skipped.
Rainbow Run is for agility dogs who have passed since the last Nationals.
This year’s theme will be “Celebrating Partners!” While the titles document success, no initials can adequately reflect the journey that brought us to those achievements. Please provide one or two short moments that personify your relationship with your dog. Was it tackling the weave poles for the very first time? A crowning victory at a major event? Or a moment when your eyes met on course and the feeling of teamwork was unforgettable. We’d love to hear about your special partner.
Those cherished memories will be read aloud by the announcer for all to share while you and/or your dog enjoy the Run for Glory or Rainbow Run course. Each team will be awarded a personalized ribbon with their dog’s name and titles embossed on it. Rainbow entrants (or their designee) will be provided their ribbon to carry around the ring to memorialize their partner.
The deadline for entering this event is April 1, 2023 to allow time for ordering the custom ribbons and the cost is $25.
