The Dog Powered Sports Association of Yukon is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its annual mid-distance race. This year’s race will see an exciting change in location from the Dawson Overland Trail to the beautiful trail network that encompasses Mount Granger and the Fish Lake area.
The 110 mile race (approximately) will start at the Lorne Mountain Community Centre, run up the Alligator Lake trail, cut around Mount Granger and take a mandatory 5 hour break at Sky High Wilderness Ranch. After the layover the race trail will follow a slightly different route before meeting back up with the Alligator Lake trail and ending back at the community center. (A more detailed description of the route will be available in the near future.)
Start time: February 25th 1:30 pm at the Lorne Mountain Community Centre
