The Skijoring Sprints are exciting, fast-paced, head-to-head contest with heats of 3-4 one dog skijor teams (consisting of a skier and one dog in harness). For novice competitors and seasoned racers the skijor sprints are fun and welcoming; and there is not much better for spectating.

Brackets are determined by event leads after the close of online registration. The Skijoring Sprints begin immediately after the other Friday night sprints finish between 7:30 and 8:00 pm.

Come cheer on your favorite dogs (oh, and their people too)!

No new registrations will be allowed after close of online registration due to the amount of time it takes to develop competition brackets and schedules.
