Last November, during The Adventure Racing World Championship, a 430 mile endurance race, a team of Swedish extreme athletes were able to kindle an unexpected friendship. As the team stopped to rest, a stray dog came to greet them. Mikael Lindnord, the team captain, offered the haggard dog part of his meatball, and the friendship instantly began. This worn out pup, who was later named Arthur, became the fifth member of the team. This heartwarming article tells the tale of Arthur and his friend’s journey to the finish line, leaving “no man… or dog, behind.”
