Claws vs. Paws: The science behind the challenge

When the 95 UW-Milwaukee runners who made up Team Paws lined up for the start of the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, one thing was certain – they had science on their side.

The UWM College of Health Sciences (CHS) Department of Kinesiology worked with Team Paws runners in the months leading up to the marathon and the Claws vs. Paws Competition (a friendly race-within-a-race between UWM and Concordia University Wisconsin).

In this video, Team Paws Captain and UWM Chancellor Michael R. Lovell races toward his scientific results in the lab and an extra edge that helped UWM claim victory on race day.

Congrats, Team Paws. Well done, CHS!
