If you can't make it to Alaska for the Iditarod, head to Tahoe Donner and SnowFest instead. The 12th annual I-Did-A-Run event returns to Tahoe Donner on March 13 at the Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes will compete in this entertaining, timed dog pull race. The event pits dog against dog in a race against the clock, pulling sleds over a snow-covered course. Prizes are awarded to the speediest finishers among four weight divisions.
Registration takes place at 12 p.m. the day of the event, and the race starts promptly at 1 p.m. Entry per dog is $20 and includes a goody bag. Participants and spectators can win great prizes through a raffle with proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe. Last year the event raised $2,775.
