Tahoe Donner’s I-Did-A-Run raises $2,775 for humane society

TRUCKEE, Calif. ‚— As part of North Lake Tahoe’s SnowFest!, the 11th annual I-Did-A-Run event took place March 8 at Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes pulled out all the stops to compete in this on-snow dog pull race, with proceeds from raffle sales raising $2,775 for the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe.

This is an increase of $665 from the preceding year.

Dogs raced against the clock, pulling covered wagon sleds over a snow-covered course and prizes were awarded to the speediest finishers among four weight divisions.

In total, 42 dogs raced for the title:

Division 1 (0-25 pounds) winner: Maci, a Terrier mix, at 4.18 seconds; owner, Tullin Valdez.

Division 2 (26-50 pounds) winner: Daisy, a Border Collie/Labrador mix, at 4.78 seconds; owner, Betsy Nye.

Division 3 (51-75 pounds) winner: Nikolai, a Siberian Husky, at 3.78 seconds; owner, Hannah Gray.

Division 4 (76+ pounds) winner: Jack, a Labrador mix, at 11.55 seconds; owner, Luke Ryan.

The overall winner was Nikolai, owned by Hannah Gray of Dayton, Nev.

Of interest, Nikolai competed as a puppy last year in Division 1 and also won that title.
