Part of Salisbury Winter Sports Association’s Jumpfest February 11-13 is the Human Dog Sled Race. This unique race is being held on the evening of Friday, February 11th. This is the chance for you and five of your friends to get together and be creative with the added bonus of entertaining others. It is easy and fun to do and worth at least a year of bragging rights and Instagram photos!
Participating is easy. All you have to do is to gather up a kennel of friends that are 18 and older and have a moderate level of fitness! The course is over .3 miles in the snow. The teams consist of six people including five pulling and one riding.
Next, and this is when the fun really starts, you will design your own sled that can be as simple as an inner tube or as elaborate as an imitation fire truck. At the event on February 11, your team will compete for trophies in men’s, women’s, and mixed categories as well as a people’s choice award for best costume/sled. This evening event is professionally announced and a crowd favorite.
If you want to be part of the action and have a lot of fun competing in the Human Dog Sled Race contact firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them that you want to register. SWSA will respond with all the documentation and rules. Registration is just $25 per team and is used to help sustain the mission of SWSA.
Also, keep in mind that Friday night of Jumpfest is a great time! An eighth of a mile of Luminaries guide you to the site, two roaring bonfires to keep you toasty, food and beverages are for sale and target ski jumping and the Human Dog Sled Races are all held under the lights!
