More about the Kearney Dog Sled Races

Welcome to Kearney Dog Sled Races!


Kearney is a quaint community of 800 people, located just north of Huntsville, Ontario and proudly hosts the largest dog sled race in Ontario.  The races are held annually on the 1st weekend of February, drawing teams and mushers from Alaska, Quebec, Manitoba, Ontario and the North Eastern States. Kearney hosts more than 70 competitive mushers along with novice and future mushers.

We host 5 races of different distances for the professional or beginner musher and trek through the beautiful northern wilderness.  We also host a race specifically for the up and coming young mushers.  Our event attracts fans from all over the world and we keep them all updated through online postings throughout the weekend.   The Kearney Dog Sled Race Committee has the mission to preserve the heritage of this exciting dog sport and to continue to support international enthusiasm for sports competition, education and awareness of this very special style of dog.
