Dogsled Race Education Programs

Putting the kayaks away is always a sad event. But the good news is - it signals the start of my favourite season...


Many dogsled race committees are joining the growing trend to include an educational component to their race.

If you are a teacher interested in following a race with your class, or even just a fan wanting to learn more, there are blogs and websites you can follow along with.

  • Pick a favourite musher (I'm a loyal fan of Martin Buser, my musher-crush)
  • Meet the dogs
  • Follow the race via GPS
  • Live Chats
  • Read news reports from a Canine news team
  • Contests, videos for classrooms, games and more!

Here are a few links to get you started
