10 Dog, 2 Day Stage Race AnnouncedSeptember 27, 2014
The Town of Kearney Sled Dog Races has changed its Mid-Distance Race format for the 2015 season to a Stage Race format. Mushers will be permitted to utilize a 12 dog pool with a maximum 10 dog team size for each of the two days of racing. The race distance will be approx. 50 miles each day with the best accumulative time being the winner. Race Organizers currently have a $5000 purse and an entry fee of $80.00 prior to February 1st, 2015.
The Kearney Race has been established for 21 years and welcomes the new format and looks forward to seeing returning distance and mid-distance mushers from previous races coming to experience the new format of mid-distance racing at our event. Kearney also continues to present 1 and 2 dog ski-joring, 4 and 6 dog Sprints along with the 2 day Kid and Mutt race. A total purse for the weekend is currently set at $11,000.
For anyone that has never raced at Kearney, the race courses all present a down town start, challenging hills to climb, hardwood bush, lakes and marshes to enjoy while racing through the natural beauty of the area.
Race Rules can be found on the 10 dog stage race page.
