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 other dog lovers.
Racers must be a minimum of 16 years of age to race 4 dogs unless pre-approved; 12 years minimum for 2 dogs unless accompanied by a parent. Under age 18 must wear a helmet and eye protection. All sleds must have sled bag to hold an injured dog if necessary, a snow hook sufficient to hold the team and a leash or snub-line. Any participant may be disqualified if their equipment, ability to safely manage their team, or their treatment of the dogs is deemed unacceptable by the Race Marshall. No loose dogs on site. Please clean up after your dogs.
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.
