Jackson, Wyoming – January 21, 2009 – Twenty teams from around the world will mush from Jackson’s starting line for the 2009 International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race on January 30, announced race director Frank Teasley. The race will continue through 11 Wyoming towns before ending in Park City, Utah, on February 7.
"We're proud in our fourteenth year to be not only the largest sled dog race in the lower 48 states, but also to be recognized as the 'dog friendly' race," said Teasley. "We invite spectators to come see how these dogs love to run."
The IPSSSDR stops in a different town each night, allowing teams to rest. Each day presents a new stage in a format similar to that of bicycling's Tour de France. Wyoming towns along the race route host celebrations that include doggie fashion shows, Dutch oven dinners, spaghetti feeds, and a human-pulled sled race, to name a few of the events on the 2009 schedule.
The International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race was founded in 1996 by Frank Teasley to make sled dog racing more accessible to the public.
