The furriest 4K on the Eastside! 

This non-competitive 4K jog and walk brings dog lovers together to kick-start 4th of July festivities. Grab your furry 4-legged friend and explore the streets of Downtown Bellevue. The post-race "After Paw-ty" includes a dog costume contest, Seattle Humane’s MaxMobile, bouncy houses, a selfie station, participant goodie bags and more!

Raise Your Paws for Charity!

The Bellevue Four on the 4th Dog Jog & Walk is an annual 4k event that starts and finishes in Downtown Bellevue and benefits Seattle Humane in Bellevue. We are proud to have raised $‚Äč14,463 for Seattle Humane since the inaugural event in 2013. Our 4K takes place every 4th of July in appreciation that while Independence Day is a time for fun and celebration, it is also a stressful time for pets due to loud noises and bright sights. This event keeps dogs active to ease them into the holiday while also supporting our local open-door animal shelter.
