Walking  •  Hiking  •  Running


May 1, 2016 - April 30, 2017

“PVSC 365” is a program to encourage regular exercise with our Samoyeds -- with a modest goal of an average of one mile per day walking, hiking or running.  PVSC 365 mileage tracking will begin on May 1, 2016 and go through April 30, 2017.  PVSC members and applicants whose Samoyed(s) complete 365 miles in that time will be awarded a PVSC 365 patch.  Those individual Samoyeds who have achieved an annual total of 1000 miles (may include bikejoring-scootering-carting-sledding mileage) will be recognized by PVSC with an additional award.  Participants should report mileage to Tamara Somerville approximately every week so that she can keep this webpage updated.
