"Green River Rondy" teams will race Saturday and Sunday
A new, local sled dog race will be held this weekend in the Upper Green. The "Green River Rondy" is a two-stage race and will be run from the Upper Green River parking lot. According to race organizer Cathy MacKay, the timed race will cover a 10-mile loop each day.
The race will be limited to 6-dog teams rather than the larger 10 and 16 dog teams. Ms. MacKay says there seems to be a growing number of people with smaller teams as the mushing gains popularity. The race is listed on the schedule at sleddogcentral.com, and Ms. MacKay says she doesn't know for sure how many teams will show up. She expects anywhere between 10 and 50 teams.
The Green River Bar in Daniel is the race's main sponsor, says Ms. MacKay. Husky Express has also donated dog booties as prizes.
The race will begin at 9:30 a.m. each day, and Ms. Mackay says spectators are welcome.
