Biker Dog Run 2003

May 18th, 2003 - 1st Annual Biker Dog Run

The first annual run was a huge success! The simultaneous multi-city run got TV coverage and made front page news. Click on the thumbnails below for news clippings, event photos, pins, charitable funds raised, and (soon to come) video clips. Oakland had the most attendees, followed by San Diego, Portland, and Denver *. The Oakland turnout drew quite a crowd of bikers, biker dogs, the curious, and even Oakland PD. A Tribune reporter covered the event as well as a hired videographer. The San Diego run made the local TV news.

* Note: The Virginia Biker Dog Run got rained out and the Milwaukee Biker Dog Run had been cancelled earlier due to the untimely passing of Taz's guardian [see story]

Run pins: Each biker dog attendee earned a custom "1st Annual Biker Dog Run" full-color run pin (pin shown at right). And our co-sponsor, Biker Dogs Motorcycle Club had "Biker Dog Support Pack" pins available for anyone that wanted to support the right of dogs to ride motorcycles! (There have been efforts by the establishment to interfere with these rights and the club is fighting to prevent this.) Click on thumbnails to enlarge and obtain more info (pricing, ordering, interesting facts).

Donations: The run raised $281.00 for non-profit organization Discovery Dogs of Marin who train assistance dogs for the disabled. And an additional $10.00 donation was made to the SPCA. Click for story and photos.
