Canyon Sled Dog Challenge

State Park Events
Date: February 23, 2019 09:00 AM

Venue: Pine Creek Rail Trail, Ansonia - Tiadaghton

The Grand Canyon Sled Dog Challenge will be on Saturday, Feb. 23. Sponsored by the Pennsylvania Sled Dog Club, the Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce and DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry, the challenge is an out and back 18-mile mid distance run on the Pine Creek Rail Trail from Ansonia to Tiadaghton. In this challenge, pro and registered breed teams of six to eight Alaskan and Siberian huskies will pull dogsleds under the direction of their mushers to test their skills. They will leave at 9am in two-minute intervals from the Marsh Creek Access in Ansonia, run nine miles to Tiadaghton, turn around at a small tear drop loop and run nine miles back to the Marsh Creek Access on the Pine Creek Rail Trail. Spectators can park at the Darling Run Access to get great views of the fast-paced action. For information, call 570-724-1926.
