Normally this race runs along city trails from Goose Lake to Tozier Track part of the same route used by the Fur Rondevous "World Championships." This year due to icy trail conditions, the entire race was held on the 4 mile loop at the Tozier Track Trails (Facility owned and operated by the Alaska Sled Dog Racing Association (ASDRA) "Home of the Fastest Dogs in the World." These trails run through Far North Bicentennial Park (Municipality of Anchorage) and Campbell Tract (Bureau of Land Management). The trails are groomed and maintained by ASDRA. They are relatively flat. For the race they were freshly groomed ice/corn snow and were hard and fast.
Weather was overcast with temperatures in the 20s with a steady north wind that gave a wind-chill into the single digits at times.
This is an annual fun race that gives the Anchorage Skijor Club (North American Skijor and Ski Pulk Association NASSPA) and ASDRA a chance to get together and have some fun competition between the two slightly different disciplines. "Dogs is dogs" and fun was had by all, especially at the pot-luck afterwards.
