Coming Soon: UP200 Dryland Dash & Fun Run

September 25, 2019

The 2019 UP200 Dryland Dash & Fun Run will take place on October 12 – 13, 2019 at Negaunee Township Park. Come see the equipment, dogs in training, or try your own dog on the trail!

Competitive races cover the one- or two-mile loop trails starting at 10:00 am on Saturday and Sunday. Classes featured in the two-day event are 6- and 4-dog rig; 2-dog scooter; 1 and 2 dog bikejor; and 1 and 2 dog canicross. Times are combined over the two days to determine the winners competing for a $2000 purse. A portion of the entry fees are donated to UPAWS.

On Saturday at 2:00 pm the Fun Run offers an opportunity for people who want to run or bikejor to take one dog and cover the one-mile loop for fun and to raise money for UPAWS. For people with little to no experience, a limited number of harnesses, shock absorber lines, and waist belts may be available on a first-come, first-served basis. 50% of the Fun Run $10 entry fee is donated to UPAWS, so bring your dog and enjoy the beautiful trails at Negaunee Township Park.

Spectators are welcome and this is a family-friendly event. Come see sled dogs in action during this Fall event. For more information or to volunteer to help, contact Tim Trowbridge at 920-323-7256 or email Tim at tctrowbridge@charter.net.
