Dog mushers from throughout the Midwest and Canada will gather together to compete in this fairly-new sport of fall sled dog racing using rigs/carts, bicycles (bikejoring), scooters and even canicross (running with a dog). The races are short (1-2.5 miles), and families of all ages are welcome to come, watch, and meet the dogs and their owners (please ask permission to pet the dogs). Novice racers are welcome to participate but are encouraged to contact the race organizers in advance for information on racing. Friday, October 21, will be devoted to teaching beginners the sport; bring your dog(s) and the race organizers will provide equipment for you to try dryland sports. There is no charge to watch; there is a nominal fee to participate. This event is an International Sled Dog Racing Association sanctioned dryland race. Several of the classes will also be IFSS (International Federation of Sleddog Sports) accredited. Timing overseen by Wisconsin Trailblazers Sled Dog Club officials.
