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.)
