This race is dedicated to recreational mushers and dog-powered sports enthusiasts and is open to all breeds. It also serves as an opportunity for experienced dog mushers to enjoy the trail and share their knowledge. Most importantly it is a chance to “get working dogs off unemployment” and have a great time socializing with our dog sledding friends.
Please be aware that these dogs are not all house pets. Ask the owner before you approach any dog, be respectful of the proper way to approach a dog.
No loose dogs on site. Racers under age 18 must wear a helmet and eye protection. Racers in the 4 dog class must be 16 years or older, exemptions may be made for 14 and older who have proven their ability to handle their team – subject to race marshal approval. Please clean up after your dogs. All sleds must have a snow hook sufficient to hold the team and a leash or snub-line. Dogs are required to be in harness. Any participant may be disqualified if their equipment or their treatment of the dogs is deemed unsafe or unacceptable by the Race Marshall.
