Baby We Were Born To Run

Our Burns Pet Nutrition Husky dog sponsorship

by Burns Team Writer

At Burns Pet Nutrition we have recently started sponsoring our very first Husky sled team.

Stuart and Lisa Murray from Wolverhampton have a team of six Huskies. Lenny, Jingle, Tracker, Tubbs, Badger, Moose, Buck and Diago are aged between 2 and 7. They compete in both dryland and snow competitions across the UK and Europe with the dogs running distances of between 2 and 5 miles and reaching average speeds of around 16-18 miles per hour.

They also have Nuggett who was previously a member of the team but is now enjoying a well-earned retirement. Nuggett still takes part in the capacity of supervisor/ cheerleader and is very vocal whilst the others train. At 11 years old Nuggett prefers chilling out and taking nice walks.

Stuart and his team of Huskies are currently champions in both 6 dog and 2 dog for the 2018/19 racing season but this isn’t new to them with a number of titles already under their belt. Between them both Stuart and Lisa have achieved several titles with their team of dogs, some of the most recent including:

  • SHC GB Aviemore winner 2017,2018,2019 also taking the award for the fastest overall time of the event in 2018 & 2019
  • BSSF National Champion 4 dog Nordic 2015 & 2016
  • AMWA 6 dog Championship – leading 2019 championship points
  • AMWA Winner Veteran Championship 2015, 2017,2018
  • AMWA Winner 4 dog Championship 2017, 2018
  • AMWA Winner 2 dog Championship 2017, 2019 leading Championship points

We will be supporting the dogs with complimentary food to fuel them ready for the new season of racing.

Join us in welcoming Stuart, Lisa and the dogs to the Burns sponsorship family. We look forward to seeing what they can achieve in the 2019/20 race season when they are #PoweredByBurns.
