The UK’s Largest Sled Dog Rally
The Aviemore Sled Dog Rally has been an annual event since 1984. When first initiated there were just 12 teams competing, but it has certainly grown since then. It is now the UK’s largest sled dog rally and regularly attracts over 250 mushers and in excess of 1,000 sled dogs.
The event is
Teams may consist of between two and eight dogs pulling a sled on trails that run between four and seven miles. Although the event is most spectacular when there is good snow, the race can still proceed when the snow is missing. Three-wheeled rigs that look like a tricycle (but without a seat) are used instead of the traditional sleds.
Although Siberian Huskies are still the main dogs competing, other race dogs include Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, Greenland Dogs
