Pack Burro Race: World Championship 2

Pack Burro Race: World Championship 2

This program documents a second World Championship Pack Burro Race, which occurs yearly in the Rocky Mountain town of Fairplay, Colorado. This world-class "race into the hills," has racers and burros running 29 miles and climbing up to 3,000 feet; also burros must wear a pack with traditional mining gear that weighs in at 35 pounds. The burro, which is the Spanish word for donkey, must be led the entire race by a halter attached to a rope not more than 15 feet long. Although simple to understand, it is very difficult to accomplish, not only because of the endurance issue, but because the burro is a stubborn animal, which makes for some interesting "racing." This Championship race is a part of the town's "Burro Days," a tribute to the animals and their role in the Old West mining days. 07/09DE IJSCA 50 min.
