Experienced and novice participants will compete with their dogs on Madison Winter Festival’s skijor loop, making one or two 2 Km laps. The race will have solo starts at 30-second intervals, and awards will be given to top overall finishers in each distance and dog class. Pups will be awarded with treats!
This is a fun way to extend your Madison Winter Festival weekend at Elver Park, giving all family members have a chance to stretch their legs.
Skijoring combines cross country skiing with dog power. The skier is attached to his/her dog with a belt and towline. The dog then runs ahead as the skier skis. Most medium size dogs (30 pounds and up) who are trained properly can be candidates for skijoring.
