    Just curious who was the winner from the rat run for 2011. I noticed that the pub and hotel in bridgetown were not mentioned above yet were part of the rat run. too bad we stayed at the hotel nice, clean, and our family had a tasty meal at the pub. we are from ontario , and spent just shy of a week enjoying the area. too much to see and look forward to visiting the area again soon. thank you to the volunteers of the rally.great job.
