Races are competitive activities that test endurance and speed against other participants. The challenge goes up a notch when participants have to sprint in dinosaur costumes. Bulky T-Rex costumes may weigh people down but the goal is to determine who is the fastest T-Rex in the pack.
Over 150 people wore dinosaur costumes at a Washington racetrack and ran approximately 330 feet to the finish line. There were two races on the track, one featuring the adult race and one for the kid’s race. TriGuard Pest Control was the proud sponsor of the dinosaur race.
Who took the trophy home for the quickest dinosaur? Logan Kludsikofsky came in first place in the adult race and Sebastian Davis, a 13-year-old boy, was the winner of the children’s race.
The last time the T-Rex Race at Emerald Downs occurred, it went viral online. Track President Phil Ziegler still gets requests to share the 2019 video. “So many people commented how the race video made them smile and laugh,” he said.
If you happen to spot dinosaurs running at high speed, do not be alarmed. It’s not Halloween or a scene out of Jurassic Park. It’s just hundreds of people embracing their competitive spirit with dinosaur costumes.
