The 24th Annual Kearney Dog Sled Races held on February 24-25, 2018 has been cancelled due to unsafe trail conditions.

As the weather has not co-operated in assembling proper conditions for the races, the Kearney Dog Sled Race Committee has decided to cancel this years event in order to protect the safety of the dogs and mushers in the races. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused as this decision was not made lightly but the safety of mushers, their dog teams, spectators, and volunteers is of utmost importance. 

We hope that you join us next year for our 25th Annual Kearney Dog Sled Races. As next year will be the 25th anniversary for the Dog Sled Races, the event promises to feature extra fun-filled family activities and entertainment for all ages!
