ROANOKE, Va. -

You've heard of running with the bulls, but what about running with the dogs?
 
That was the case Saturday for the 2nd annual Tail chasers 5k.

The event benefits the Roanoke Valley SPCA.

Participants could either chose to run 3-point-1 miles around Wasena Park in Roanoke or do a 1-mile walk.

And, they could bring their 4-legged friend along for the adventure.
 
"It's a fundraiser for the RVSPCA, this is our second year, and even with the rain we have 200-runners and over 50-walkers participating," explains CEO Denise Hayes.
 
Those numbers are larger than last year.

The RVSPCA hopes to continue to grow the event.
