Sled dog race a fun fundraiser

The second annual Cache Valley Mushers Corporation dryland dog sled race will be held Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and 16, at the American West Heritage Center. Corporation director Amy Eskelson says it is a fundraiser for the non-profit organization to support the winter sled dog race and to help Arctic Breed Rescue out of Provo.Eskelson says the race starts at 8 a.m.”We had 36 participants last year,” Eskelson says. “We have an eight dog race, a six dog race, then four dog and a junior race. And this year we added skijoring. “That’s why the dryland can be a precinct to practice before we have our winter race.”Eskelson says it is a fun sport and anyone interested in learning more about it is invited to attend. The winter race will be held on March 4 and 5, 2011.
