With one of the warmest Decembers on record, and no snow forecast for the immediate future, the New England Sled Dog Races have been rescheduled for February 4-5, 2012. Teams of 1 to 8 dogs, driven by mushers of all ages and all levels, will race from Appleton Farms south into Hamilton and back. This is the third year running for this exciting and unique event, which is the only sled dog race held in Massachusetts and the only International Sled Dog Racing Association sanctioned race in New England! This is a great outdoor activity for the family to enjoy some fresh air as they witness a unique sport in a wonderful natural setting. Essex County Trail Association is coordinating the volunteer effort for the event, and will receive a portion of the proceeds from this event, along with The Trustees of Reservation, Essex County Greenbelt, and the MSPCA.
