The Northern Manitoba Trappers Festival is on this week in The Pas.
One of the main events is the World Championship Sled Dog Races. This year it’s estimated over 25 teams will run in the 10-dog race. Dogs and their mushers will cover approximately 60 kilometers a day for the next 3 days hoping for the fastest overall time. The Manitoba Championship races are also held in conjunction with the World Championship races.
102-9 CJAR will have full coverage of the shotgun start and updates throughout the race.
