A Mushing Good Time at Evergreen Park
Jan 4, 2013
We have it on good authority that Evergreen Park has let the dogs out, literally, with the Grande Prairie Sled Dog Derby. The two day derby will run January 5- 6 at Evergreen Park and will feature five different races, with varying categories.
The sled races will include a four-dog junior race, a four-dog, four-mile purebred and open race, a six-dog, six-mile purebred and open, and a 10-dog, 10-mile open race.
Organizers are hoping the derby is a barking success, leading to an annual event that would be part of the International Sled-Dog Racing circuit; the Grande Prairie derby would be the kick-off to the race season.
An extremely fan friendly sport, organizers are encouraging everyone to come out and cheer on the racers; however, they are also encouraging fans to leave their pups at home.
