The Oldest All-American Dog Sled Race
It’s a community dog sledding tradition that started in 1917 and is now in its 104th year.
It looks to be a great race as there are more mushers and teams than last year. Team sizes range from 2 dogs up to 10 with race distances from 5 miles for novices up to 45 miles for professionals. We even have a three-generation race competition between grandpa, son, and grandson which should be entertaining at the very least.
Additionally, there will be a snowshoe race, weight pull, and other non-race events for all to enjoy. It’s free to the public and a fantastic family event for the dog days of winter.
Dress appropriately for the outdoors. Bring your dog, but not your cat if you like it.
We start early with the first teams leaving the gate at 9:00 a.m. and are back in by 11:00 or 12:00 a.m.
Due to some uncertainties with COVID-19, the race is not being billed as broadly as in years past. But come and join us, we will be COVID-19 compliant. It looks to be a howling good time.
