About this Event
he Annual Dinner Plain Sleddog Challenge event showcases the top dogs of sled dog racing in Australia and is unique in being the first Australian snow-based race of its kind.
In 2016, more than 75 mushers (dog team drivers) and in excess of 350 sled dogs competed and this year is expected to be even bigger.
Over two days of fun, spectators will see two, three, four and six-dog teams supplemented by the exhilarating eight-dog team class. If your plans are to attend this popular weekend you are definitely in for a unique experience.
Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes are the most common breeds of dogs raced. Both breeds are visually and physically powerful competitors given snow is a part of their natural habitat. Siberian Huskies are extremely quick on their paws, while the Alaskan Malamutes are known for their endurance over longer distances.
