We are partnering with the CopperDog and the Tahquamenon Country Sled Dog Race to bring you a new Triple Crown of sled dog racing, right here in the Upper Peninsula!

Mushers must compete in, and complete, three events:

Event number one; 10-dog TCSDR – January 7-8, 2023
Event number two; 12-dog UP200 -OR- 8-dog Midnight Run – February 17-19, 2023
Event number three; 10-dog CopperDog150 -OR- 8-dog CopperDog80 – March 3-5, 2023

For the first year of this challenge, each of the three race organizations will donate $1,000 for a purse totaling $3,000.  The 2023 breakdown will be as follows:
First place – $1,500
Second place – $1,000
Third place – $500

The “2023 Superior Crown” will use a weighted point system that exponentially benefits
mushers finishing closer to first place.  The musher with the LEAST amount of points will be
crowned the 2023 Superior Crown Sled Dog Series Champion. See the chart for details of the
points. Please note the difference in points between the 12-dog, 10-dog, and 8-dog events.  For simplicity only first through 15th are shown here – but the point system applies if there are 15 or 51 teams.

Participants that complete all three events will receive a unique commemorative patch only
available to mushers.

Registration for the CD150, CD80, UP200, and MNR are currently open including for races not part of the SCSDS.  Registration for all Tahquamenon Country events open on the 15th of
November. Races already full?  Get on the waiting list, there is a very good chance you will still be able to race!
