   Over 350 people and 45 dogs came out for the 6th Annual Run 4 the Greenway despite the rainy weather!  Fun was had by all—click here to see the photos from the day which shows that little bit of rain does not stop the people and dogs from having a great time! Red Dog Farm brought adoption dogs that a runner without a dog could 'borrow' for the 1 mile Doggie Jog through downtown Greensboro.  If you are interested in adopting a dog, contact Red Dog Farm. The Greensboro Greenway Gulp was made just for the Run 4 the Greenway by Preyer Brewing and debuted at the run.  The Greenway Peach Wheat beer and the Greenway Ginger Wheat beer were a huge hit among runners and will be available until the end of October at Preyer Brewing Company located at 600 Battleground Avenue. Deep Roots Market provided the runner hospitality after the run-- and gave 5% of sales on September 20th to the Downtown Greenway. Thanks to all of our sponsors who made the run a great day!
