Mushers From Across Canada To Take Part In Sled Dog Classic In Anzac

You have a chance to see dog sledding teams from across the country race in Anzac at the end of the month.

The Alberta Oilsands Sled Dog Classic on Gregoire Lake is back from January 27 and 28 with thousands of dollars in prize money up for grabs.

Event committee member Moe Ladouceur tells Fort McMurray News there will be a junior class, ten dog class, and North America’s highest-paid six dog class.

“Before it use to be a time start so now it’s going to be a mass start, so I mean we’re looking at anywhere from 20 to 30 10-dog teams, that’s two to three hundred dogs taking off at once into a funnel.”

He adds nearly every musher from Yellowknife will be taking part, along with people from Manitoba, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and the United States.

“That’s something to look forward to as well if we can get those lower 48 guys racing here on their way up to Alaska, that does a lot for our sports and says a lot about our community.”

Races begin on January 27th at 12:30 p.m. with the finals take place on the 28th at 11 a.m.
