EVENT: Tahoe Donner’s I-Did-A-Run Benefits Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe

As part of North Lake Tahoe’s SnowFest 2015, the 11th annual I-Did-A-Run event took place on 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 Ny
- 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, Nevada. Of interest, Nikolai competed as a puppy last year in division 1 and also won that title. To see all race results, visit

Tahoe Donner would like to congratulate all the winners and thank everyone who participated in the 11th annual I-Did-A-Run to support and benefit the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe.
