Chena Lakes Race

By Nina Ruckhaus, Race Director

The annual Chena Lakes Race was held on a crisp and beautifully sunny day with a great turnout of veteran skijoring teams and some newcomers. The competition was fierce between some rival teams, of all sorts of dog breeds and relative speeds, which was quite exciting to watch. We had a big class of racers going around the 3.8 mile course and one racer who ventured out far on the 12 mile loop out by the flood plains with her distance team. Thank you to the wonderful volunteers–Alice Stickney, Kathleen Boyle, and Lori Beraha–who spent there time making this race possible!
