“What a way to kick off spring!” remarked members of the SPCA Louis Trichardt, following an impressive turn-out for their fifth annual Mutt Mile, which coincided with their Spring Farmer’s Market on Saturday, 4 September.

“It was our BIGGEST Mutt Mile and Farmer’s Market to date! What incredible support from our community, and we’re quite sure everyone enjoyed it as much as we did!” said the SPCA’s Alicia Thomas.

According to Alicia, they had more than 80 entries for this year’s race and they soon realized that they did not have enough medals. They were, however, able to get more medals made in record time and delivered before the runners crossed the finish line.

Alicia thanked each and every person who supported their farmer’s market, as well as everyone who had booked a stall. “There was some stunning goods, gorgeous plants and delicious food for sale and I’m sure no one was disappointed with their purchases. Make sure you don’t miss our next farmer’s market on 2 October,” said Alicia.

The winners of the Mutt Mile were Armand Roets (1st junior 5km), Thys Badenhorst (1st senior 5km), Anika Badenhorst and dog Jakie (1st in the Mutt Mile), Elouise Krügel and Blue (best dressed award) and Lynette Ramolepo (determination award)

Alicia thanked all their sponsors and volunteers who helped make the day a success. “We truly appreciate your continued support!” said Alicia.
