The Featured Races

The Greg Alexanian Memorial 2 Dog Sled Race

The Kearney Dog Sled Races Committee would like to announce the 1st Annual Greg Alexanian Memorial 2 Dog 2 Mile Race. The race committee will host the 1st annual race in our 2020 circuit. After consideration of the committee and the subsequent cancellation of our 10-Dog Stage Race, we feel there is no better way to honour Greg’s memory than naming this exciting new class after him. Greg was shining light in our community and had incredible plans to grow and improve the Kearney Dog Sled Races. Greg will be sorely missed by this Committee, and by the Community as a whole.

The 2 Dog Sled Race is open for Junior Mushers between the ages of 14-18 with parental approval. Mushers under 14 are subject to additional specific approval by our Race Marshal. Please contact the race committee when registering a junior musher.

6 Dog Sprint Race

There is no head-on passing by the teams in this race. There is a “looped” section of trail where we will have several volunteers to assist teams in either heading into the looped trail for a 2nd lap, or veering them towards the home stretch.

Any Junior musher registrations must be approved in advance by the Race Marshall.
