This is the official blog for the Dog Powered Sports Association of the Yukon (DPSAY) based in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada.
This non-profit organization was started by a group of individuals in the Yukon dedicated to dog-powered sports. Over the past few years, we have hosted a variety of events including educational symposiums, races, weight pull contests, and been a forum for those involved in dog-powered sports.
Throughout the year we run monthly local races in and around Whitehorse. Depending on the season, these races involve dog sledding, skijoring, kick-sledding, cani-cross, bike-joring and even some unique forms of dog-powered sports (GT racer-pulling?)!
DPSAY also organizes a 100 mile race that involved both sleds and skis and usually takes place on the last weekend in February. The trail has changed over the years from going from Whitehorse to and past Mendenhall (Road and River Runners), Whitehorse to Braeburn (Cinnamon Bun Run) and for the first time last year it was held on the Annie Lake/Fish Lake trail system (Granger Grind). February 2018 will see the 9th annual running of this race. There will also be a 50 and 100 mile skijor category. For more information, check out the mid-distance race tab on this site and revisit us for updates of this exciting event.
Please contact us with any questions or comments. We would love to hear from you!
