Colorado to Host Dog Sled Racing

Jan 30, 2014

The Winter Olympics may be in the forefront of everyone’s mind, but canine athletes will be accomplishing their own feats in February in Colorado, not far from Colorado Springs.

The Rocky Mountain State Games Dog Sled Race will be offered February 8 - 9, 2014 in Divide, CO. This brand new competition, produced by the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation and organized by the Colorado Mountain Mushers, is reminiscent of the famed Iditarod in Alaska and promises two days of enjoyable entertainment for fans of the sport.

Races range from one to eight miles over the course. While the main portion of the Rocky Mountain State Games will be held on two weekends, July 18-20 and July 25-27, organizers jumped at the chance to produce the first winter sport ever held in the 13-year history of Colorado’s largest sports festival.
