Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the fun-filled day at Sycamore Field for the Bidwell Bark Fun Run & Festival! This year, our community raised over $30,000 for the animals at Butte Humane Society!
On Saturday, May 5th, more than 1,000 humans and their canine companions joined us for Bidwell Bark. More than 300 registrants also took to the course for the 5K Run & 2K Walk, and boy, they were lightning fast!
Our Top Three 5K Runners were Dylan (16:55), Phillip (20:04), and Adam (21:05). The first (and ONLY) Youth to run the 5K was Alex W. (38:49). Of course, we can’t forget about our four-legged runners! The Top Canine Runners were Jason & Cash (21:17), Liz & Mila (22:28), and Hyland & Beulah (24:44).
This year, we brought back an award from previous years… The Golden Bone! Each year, it is awarded to a group of participants with the most team spirit. The lucky winning team for 2018 was AMain Hobby Hounds!
