The Northern Lights 300 Sled Dog Race

12/14/11 | Sue Allen | 907-354-8631 | sue@nosnowkennels.com | http://northernlights300.org/

The Northern Lights 300 Sled Dog Race will run January 27-29, 2012.

This is a 300 mile qualifying race for the 1,000 mile Iditarod and Yukon Quest Sled Dog Races. The Northern Lights 300 is a unique mentoring race, designed to test and prepare rookies and their teams for the challenging conditions and demands of the long distance Iditarod and Yukon Quest races, while providing a great training opportunity and good competition to veteran mushers. Also unique to the Northern Lights 300 is that it passes through the first three checkpoints of the Iditarod, from Big Lake through Yentna Station, to Finger Lake on the Iditarod Trail, and return.

The race will begin and end at four-time Iditarod champion Martin Buser's Happy Trails Kennel in Big Lake. Bud Smyth, a veteran musher and a finisher in the inaugural Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in 1973, is the Race Marshall.

At checkpoints along the historic Iditarod Trail there will be experienced mentors to answer questions and offer suggestions regarding dog and musher care.

Race sponsors, volunteers, and anyone seeking more information is welcome to contact Sue Allen,
7362 W Parks Hwy 252, Wasilla, AK 99654; phone: (907) 354-8631; email: sue@nosnowkennels.com
