The 2017 IronLine Sled Dog Race will take place on January 27-28, 2017. The Ironline Sled Dog Race is an amazing event to head out and watch. Seeing the Mushers and Dogs getting ready for the race and cheer them out on the course brings smiles to everyone around. For a full description of what the race is all about I have taken information from their website at www.theironline.com! “The IronLine Sled Dog Race is now in its fifth year and seeks to be the best little medium-sized race in the upper Midwest. Combining a great trail, awesome two-day format, an involved and supportive community, numerous local sponsors, and enthusiastic volunteers, The IronLine is a great addition to any sport or pro-class musher’s schedule, or even just a recreational dog driver. We try to combine a very fun, yet competitive race and an easy-going weekend to give any racer a great winter event that also happens to be very family friendly and a blast for spectators in general. At the IronLine, we like to think we have something for everyone and can be a great companion race to the TCSDR, the Copperdog and Midnight Run races in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is now accredited with the International Federation of Sled Dog Sports or IFSS. As usual, our two-day, mid-distance/stage race format will be the same again this year with the 6-dog and 10-dog classes racing Friday night and Saturday morning. These races will be 40 & 80 miles respectively. Our recreational class, 4-Dog race will only run 12 miles on Saturday morning. Registration, this year, will be at the Americinn hotel, across Genesee Street from the RV park which hosts all our race festivities and start/finish line. We only require very modest, pre-race vet checks by our seasoned vet staff. Those will begin on a first-come, first-serve basis on Friday morning, January 27th at.” Put it on your schedules and make your reservations for an amazing weekend that allows you to see something that most people will never have the chance to enjoy!
