Sled dog races to return to Hamilton if it snows

(Continued)

“It is a sprint race,” Henrici, with the dogs reaching speeds of upward of 25 mph. The largest teams will include 14 dogs.

“They will see a show beyond their belief,” he said of those who turn out to see the races. “It will be a spectacular show.”

The races are the only sled dog events in Massachusetts sanctioned by the International Sled Dog Racing Association.

Most of the racing will be through Hamilton, on properties owned by Pingree School, Essex County Greenbelt, Appleton Farms and other private owners.

The New England Sled Dog Club Races will donate funds to the Trustees of Reservations, MSPCA at Nevins Farm in Methuen, Essex County Trail Association and Essex Greenbelt.

The races will run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. It will cost $20 per carload to park on the property. For more information go to newenglandsleddograces.com.
