'BARRY BARRATT' RECEIVES THE WINNER'S TROPHY STORY: The annual running of one of the world's most bizarre races, the British Mascot Grand National, took place at Kempton Park racecourse near London on Monday (May 6). A total of 27 mascots from all the UK representing sports clubs and businesses took part in the 200-metre race which has been run every year since 1999 when Birmingham City soccer cub mascot 'Brummie Bulldog' clinched the title. Some of the costumes were very bulky and heavy and as a consequence many competitors had very poor vision from which to navigate the course. 'Mr Bumble', the mascot of soccer team Barnet and winner in 2012, was hoping to restore some pride to his club after their relegation from the English Football league last week. He was looking forward to the race but was worried that some teams were taking the race a little too seriously. "A complete surprise last year, winning like I did. But, looking around, everyone looks fitter and younger, so, we'll see," he said as he noticed Iwan Thomas, a gold medallist for Great Britain in the 4x400-metre relay in the 1997 world championships in Athens, putting on his costume. Despite this, Thomas's costume seemed to slow him down as he did not feature well in the race. 'Sarrie the Camel', of the English rugby union Premiership team Saracens, made the early pace, but fell early on leaving 'Barry Barratt', the mascot of a local building firm, to win, finishing over five seconds ahead of 2012 winner 'Mr Bumble'. The main object of the race, of course, was to raise money for a charity, the Princess Alice Hospice. "It was so tough. It's so hot. And so much fun, really good. I'm tired!" said also-ran 'Dougie Bear' as 'Barry Barratt' collected the winner's trophy.
