R&B200s in 9th!!

We are so excited that Chris and his R&B200 Team finished strongly in 9th place! Their run time from Angel Creek Lodge was 7 hours 41 minutes for a total elapsed time of 31 hours, 25 minutes. He pulled in with Lester and Chena still in lead and all 12 of his team mates.

The dogs looks happy and waggy and Chris was very pleased with his race - as he should be! We're really proud of him and his team of Lester, Chena, Chemo, Woody, Wedgy, Coal, Hotshot, Daisy, Pepe, Violet, Amber and Cayenne.

Everyone has gone straight to bed after dinner (dogs had kibble and meat, Chris had chicken stir-fry) so we will get more details in the next couple days.

Thanks for following along with us for these races. It's been a fun, fast paced and successful weekend for SP Kennel.

Congratulations to all teams. That was a fun race to watch from my iPad. Having three teams to keep up with was awesome! Good job handlers and also SPKennel crew that keep the fans posted. You all deserve a good rest.

Congrats Chris on a GREAT RACE! Anxious to hear how each one
of the youngsters did. Altho you had two of my favorites Lester
and Violet it takes a team to complete a race--you did that!
Well Done Chris and SP dogs! (Oh, can't forget the great crew)!!
