Antigo to host sled dog races in January


ANTIGO (WKOW) – A sled dog race will be taking place in northern Wisconsin in January and some competitors could end up going to the international championship.

The Langlade County Culvers Trailblazer Challenge Sled Dog Races takes place January 12 and January 13 in Antigo.

The event is a wild card qualification event for 2013 International Federation of Sled Dog Sports World Championship Race. Some qualifying mushers and their teams could be going to Alaska in March to represent the United States.

The lack of enough snow forced the cancellation of the races in 2011 and 2012, but race director Beth Castaldi is hopeful that nature will be cooperative this year.
