Valley Funale

It was fantastic to see so many in the Two Rivers community (and beyond!) at the Valley Funale today. Thank you to the Two Rivers Dog Mushers Assoc, Pleasant Valley Store and all the volunteers who put on such a awesome event. The trail was great, the food was fantastic, the atmosphere fun and the weather gorgeous!!

The junior mushers outnumbered the adult mushers and they all seemed to have a great time with one or two dogs racing around their trail. Many showed great skills to hold on around the turns at speed and others excellent recovery from the odd spill. All of them had huge smiles on their faces!

My race went pretty well, a few thrills and spills but all-in-all a nice run over familiar trails. We finished 8th in a time of just over two hours. I ran Quito in single lead and she is such a rock star! Wow. I realise how lucky I am to be able to run this race today with this team. Congrats to near neighbour Tom for his win and thanks Kaz and Wendy for helping me!

Stellar Team; Stellar Leader

MORE pics and videos soon.
