Who’s faster, this running dog or the dragon boat crew behind? On a short run, it’s not even a contest, the dog is much faster. A Whippet or a Greyhound can easily out-accelerate a Porsche or a Ferrari. A Greyhound can reach 50 miles/hr in 3 steps.

Dog v. Dragon Boat

Dog v. Dragon Boat: Vancouver, BC

The long distance, the long run? I would guess that a Greyhound would out distance any Dragon Boat crew. Against a ‘sausage’, aka a Dachshund, the dragon boat crew would win, but almost all dogs, except for the toy dogs, will outlast any dragon boat crew.
