4th annual (not so) Great Serum Run a great success!

Our SoCal mushing group's 4th annual (not so) Great Serum Run last Saturday was a great success! We had about 70 (yes, that's seventy!) teams competing in several scooter, bikejour and canicross races. After the races, we gathered for a fantastic potluck bbq, raffle and awards ceremony.
Most successful musher was Robert Stradley of Wrightwood, who, along with his boys, won in several classes. "Team Arctis" placed a surprising 3rd in the 3-dog 3-mile race and missed 2nd place by only 6 seconds, and a 4th place finish in the 3K canicross. Great job, puppies!

Many thanks to Rancy, who's heading the Urban Mushing group, as well as all volunteers to get this event organized!
Also, many thanks to Alpine Outfitters, Three Dog Bakery San Clemente, Laguna Beach Dog Park and Diggler Scooters for providing raffle prizes.

Please see the local Daily Pilot article here and a short video by the OC Register here.

Hope to see all of you next time around!
