EUREKA- The 5th Annual Glen Paul Bobsled Races kicked off this Wednesday in Eureka.

The Coast Guard sector Humboldt Bay teamed up with students at Glen Paul School to go for the gold. However in a unique twist, the bobsleds at Glen Paul took the shape of wheel chairs, tricycles, and wagons. Its’ important to note, that this is the only bobsled team in Northern California.

Glen Paul Principal, Tess Ives said the best thing about the event is the look on the students faces when they cross the finish line.
