The Alaska Skijoring and Pulk Association will host a fun race on Sunday, December 18 at Creamer’s Field. Registration begins at 10:00 am and ends at 10:30 am, with the race starting at 11:00 am. Distances include 1/2 mile with 1 dog, and 1.4, 2.7, and 3.6 miles (approximately) with one, two, and three dog classes. If there is interest, we could add a longer distance class, depending on the state of the ADMA trails and if they are holding a race of their own that day.
Pre-registration by Saturday, December 17 at 5 pm is $5/race for ASPA members, and all participants must be members (you can join at registration). To pre-register, e-mail me at email@example.com (please don’t reply to the entire list) with the name of the person racing, dog name(s), and distance to run. Race day registration is an additional $5 for each category. We’ll hold the race if there are at least 10 pre-registrations by the cutoff on Saturday. So please respond right now to ensure the race happens! I’m hoping that everyone can take time out from holiday preparations to come out and have fun with their dogs!
Please pre-register if you want to run more than one race. It complicates things to try and get this organized on race day!
If the temperature is below -15 at 9:15 am on race morning, the race will be canceled, based on temperatures at the airport, 458-3745 ext 1113. The ASPA Web site at https://www.alaskaskijoring.org and the ASPA hotline will have the updated info shortly after 9:15, and I’ll send an email to the list.
For additional information, contact race director Don Kiely at 455-6749 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, this is a FUN race. So come on out and have some fun with your dogs!
There is a trail tour at 1PM the same day, so consider doing another run around the fields with the group!
