On Thursday night, 100 dogs and their owners raced at the UMFÍ dog run in Serchalnalnes. The event was held for the first time, reports Vísir.
“After Covid, registrations for public health events dropped by 30-50%. At the same time, people went and got dogs. We encourage them to exercise,” says Colbrunn Arna Sigurdardottir, a veterinary nurse and one of the organizers of the run.
She is very pleased that the sports movement has taken the lead in execution.
“This is the first time in Iceland that a sports movement has reached out to dog owners and asked for their cooperation.
According to Kolbrún, the number of participants far exceeded expectations.
The organization plans to make this an annual event for dogs and their owners.
