Hello Dog Lovers,
Are you still in the mood?
Our next event is coming soon. Thank you for sponsoring this race, Dean and Cadence Cycle!!
CADENCE CYCLE Twister Race & GEAR SWAP – Sunday, January 28th, 2018
SPECIAL!! Gear Swap – Everyone has dog-related gear, we don’t need anymore and stuff we are looking for. So bring it to the event, bring a table or display it on your truck, all rather informal! Trade it or sell it!!!
Where: Lorne Mt trails, registration and start in the big parking lot behind the Mt Lorne Community Hall
Most likely we will use the 10-mile loop on the Mary Lake trail this time to keep it interesting. For our Recreational class, we will find a shorter version.
10 miles: 6-8 dogs Sleds, 2-4 dogs Skijoring
Recreational 5 km: 2-4 dogs Sled, 1-2 dogs Skijoring, Fat Bikes, Kick sleds, Runners etc welcome!
Kids Dash – free and just for fun!! DPSAY will help with a dog and a sled, if you don’t have any. CHILDREN MUST WEAR A HELMET!!
About the Categories:
The longer distance (10 miles) category is the competitive race, where timing and placing applies. This category is recommended for experienced mushers/skiers and experienced dogs.
The shorter distance (3-5 miles) is the RECREATIONAL category. We will focus on a non-competitive approach. The focus is on trying a new sport with your dog (any breed!!), practicing, meeting new dog lovers and having fun without worrying about competitive dogs and mushers/skiers. (We keep track of times for your personal interest.)
10 am for the 10 mile category

This is NEW: REGISTER at 12:00 pm, when you participate in the Recreational Class and Kids Dash.
