  • Email Ken Isaak, the event coordinator, so he can add you to the participant list:
Access to the boardwalk areas with the dogs has been arranged. Catalina does not allow other dogs on the boardwalk, but Catalina is making an exception because they believe greyhound owners are responsible owners who clean up after their dogs.

The island of Catalina is looking forward to the march of the greyhounds down the main street.  Be part Catalina Island history and help promote greyhound adoption while you’re there!
