ASDRA Junior Senior Fun Run Sunday March 19
Fun race was attended by 16 teams and many volunteers. Thanks to the volunteers! With the teams going out in reverse direction there were several creative runs taking alternate routes such as the 1 dog turnaround, multiuser trail detour, and the turnaround before the finish that takes you right back out and around snuck up on a few. Good spirits, pizza afterwards made for a fun sunny spring day.
In 1949 the Alaskan Sled Dog and Racing Association (ASDRA) was formed to promote and preserve the great Alaskan tradition of dog mushing.
The non-profit club puts on internationally recognized races from January 1 through the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous in February of each year. Race fees and trail fees are used to maintain the club trailhead facilities and groom the trails in Far North Bicentennial Park. The 20 miles of trail known as Tozier Track begins and ends at a 10-acre trailhead site owned by ASDRA.
A strong junior mushing program provides education and winter recreation for mushers from 4 to 17 years. Members sponsor events sharing their sport with the community and tourists.
