British mascots go head to head in strange race

Britain's Kempton Park was the venue for the British mascot "Grand National." 

It is not Britain's biggest race, but it's probably the strangest.  Mascots from 27 sports teams and business across Britain were part of the 200 meter race.  While it looks silly, it takes a lot of effort for the men and women wearing the costumes to run 200 meters because the costumes are big, bulky and it is often hard to see.  One competitor he was exhausted, but had a great time. The winner was "Sarrie the Camel" from a rugby club. 

The race is run every year and the money raised is given to charity.
