National Championship Skijoring Races
to be held this winter in Minneapolis, Minnesota

8/24/10 | John Thompson, Skijor USA

First Annual National Championship Skijoring Races to be held this winter in Minneapolis, Minnesota

On February 5th and 6th, 2011 the nation's top skijorers will compete in Minneapolis, MN for national titles in one and two dog skijoring. A third title - combined skijoring - will be awarded to the skijorer who posts the fastest combined time over the two days of racing. Women and men will compete separately and the purse will be divided equally between the classes. Skijorers outside the USA are encouraged to race and will be eligible for all cash prizes (national titles awarded to top American finishers only).

The two dog race will consist of two laps around Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis with a finish on the snow covered streets of the trendy Uptown neighborhood. Race distance will be 7.5k and one or two dogs are permitted.

The one dog race will be held on the hilly Junior Olympic course in Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis. Race distance will be 14k and only one dog is permitted. To be eligible for the combined title, a skijorer must use one of the same dogs raced in the two dog event the previous day. Racers must agree to possible drug testing. Both races are being held in conjunction with the City of Lakes Loppet (cityoflakesloppet.com). Last year the City of Lakes Loppet and race director Kevin Murphy organized the world's largest skijoring event with over 120 participants.

Final details including purse size, online race application and contact information will be available in November.
