Our last race of the season is coming up ! It will be at the old YDMA tracks in the Ibex Valley which are still in great conditions and have been freshly groomed by Armin !
Registration is at 9:30, Race at 10:30 so just a bit earlier than usual to reduce the impact of warmer temperatures on the dogs. Distances are 4 miles and 12 miles.
There will be 3 categories as we are trying to accommodate more participants:
– Twister Race: 12 miles, 6 to 8 dogs for sleds, 2-4 dogs for skijoring
– Shorter Race – Competitive: 4 miles, 2-4 dogs for sleds, 1-2 dogs for skijoring (for participants who run sled dogs and have more than 1 year of racing experience)
– Shorter Race – Recreational: 4 miles, 2-3 dogs for sleds, 1-2 dogs for skijoring (for participants who run pet dogs and have less than one year of racing experience)
In addition we’ll have our fully supervised and fun kids dash runs (1 dog, 1 sled).
Registration is $10 per race for members, and $15 per race for non members. Membership is $15 for individual membership, and $25 for kennel membership (expiration April 2016).
There will be a BBQ available for use after the race, only condiments will be provided, potluch style.
See you there!!
Directions: The road to the Ibex Valley tracks is off the Alaska Highway going towards Haines Junction. At about 7 km from the AK highway/North Klondike Highway cutoff, you will see a first sign for the Old Alaska Highway. Continue on the highway until you see the second sign for the Old Alaska Highway. The road is on the right just passed this second sign. Blue flagging on the electrical post will indicate the road.
