The eighth annual Tahoe Donner I-Did-A-Run returns to Snowfest, with a new front runner Donner Bear, the Bernese mountain dog.
Bring your own dog or come cheer on all the pooches behind the Lodge Restaurant & Pub on Sunday, March 11. Registration begins at 12 p.m. Race starts at 1 p.m.
Race fee is $20 with proceeds going to the Truckee Tahoe Humane Society. Prizes will be awarded for the speediest finishers. All participants receive a “doggie bag” containing treats and goodies.
There will be five categories based on the weight of the dog:
- Puppy (not eligible for the overall win)
- 0-25 lbs.
- 26-50 lbs.
- 51-75 lbs.
- 76 lbs. and up
Here’s a hint or two for pet owners: you can bribe your pooch with anything and everything on race day, but remember pulling your canine during the race will disqualify your dog.
Raffle tickets for great prizes to benefit the Truckee Tahoe Humane Society will be sold at the event. Tickets are $1 each and winners do not have to be present to win.
The snack bar and pub will open at 11:30 a.m. The Pub opens for food service at 2:30 p.m. with happy hour specials.
