If you and Rover spend Father’s Day in California, consider joining the Run in the Name of Love, a 2K run-walk in dog-friendly Carmel-by-the-Sea. The June 19 event is open to a maximum of 300 participants and their canines. Dogs under 50 pounds receive a race shirt ($16 extra), while larger ones receive a bandanna ($8). There is also a people-only 5K run for up to 1,000 participants. Race founder Susan Love organized the runs, which benefit two local youth programs, in memory of her son, who died in a snowboarding accident. Registration until June 12: $35 for 5K and $25 for 2K.
