The Oldest All-American Dog Sled Race

February 17, 2023 to February 18, 2023

Depending on snow conditions, we are hoping to run the races from town this year.  Keep up the snow dances 

From 1917 when Tud Kent won the first American Dog Derby during a blinding blizzard to this year’s races, the running of the dogs in Ashton is an exciting event rich in history. There are 5 different races offered and a start/finish line full of activities including a celebrity race, a snowshoe race, and a weight pull in which spectators and their dogs can compete.
