Red Dog's Dog Days, the Lawrence-based community fitness program, kicks off its summer season Saturday at the Lied Center.

This summer's Saturday sessions will entail some light calisthenic exercises followed by a one-to-four-mile "fun run" (walkers are also welcome) at 7 and 7:45 a.m. at the Lied Center, 1600 Stewart Drive. Sessions consisting of calisthenics, U.S. Marine Corps drills and a one-to-four-mile run, will be held Mondays through Thursdays, starting this Monday, at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the Lawrence High School track, 1901 Louisiana St.

Red Dog's Dog Days is free and open to the public. No reservations are required — simply show up, look for the check-in spot and provide your name and T-shirt info. Each check-in goes toward earning a T-shirt for the season.

Sessions are generally held rain or shine. For more information, including possible cancellations, visit Red Dog's Dog Days on Facebook.
