The first Toronto running of the Idiotarod was held on Saturday, with six teams racing through checkpoints from Grange Park to Bellevue Square Park. The event, organized by Wero Creative, was a great success, with competitors braving torrential rain to reach the finish line with carts, if not sanity, intact.
