Kearney Dog Sled Races Committee

In consideration for the safety of our community, the 2021 Annual Kearney Dog Sled Races have been cancelled due to

Ontario’s largest dog sled racing event comes to “Ontario’s Biggest Little Town” every year. Kearney is a quaint community of 882 people, located just north of Huntsville, Ontario. The races are held annually in February, and they draw teams and mushers from Alaska, Quebec, Manitoba, Ontario, and the North Eastern States. Kearney hosts more than 70 competitive mushers along with novice and future mushers. This long standing tradition has been running annually since 1994.

The Kearney Dog Sled Races host five race classes of different distances for the professional or beginner musher, and the trails trek through the beautiful northern wilderness. We also host a race specifically for the up and coming young mushers. Our event attracts fans from all over the world and we keep them all updated through online postings throughout the weekend. The Kearney Dog Sled Race Committee has the mission to preserve the heritage of this exciting dog sport and to continue to support international enthusiasm for sports competition, education and awareness of this very special style of dog.
