Welcome to the 3rd Annual Georgia Dryland Sled Dog Race! We are excited to host this event again with our Georgia Urban Mushing Team. Our goal is to continue to grow the sport of dog powered sports in the South and we are happy for your participation in our third annual race.


Event Dates: Saturday February 3rd and Sunday February 4th, 2024.

- Racers compete in their classes on both days for two completion times which will get combined for one overall finisher time for consideration for final class and group ranking.

- If a team scratches or does not complete their race class run on Saturday, they will not be allowed to race on Sunday.


Location: Allatoona Creek Park, 5690 Old Stilesboro Rd NW, Acworth, GA 30101

- Park is to be left spotless as we found it. Please help ensure we are invited to return next year for a possible race site.

Entries will be limited to the first 120 entries, with no maximum number of racers per class. We will be taking online entries up until Sunday January 28th at 12pm eastern time or potentially closing registration sooner if we reach our maximum of 120 entires. We will make a facebook post on the event page if we sell out of spots to be able to comment to be placed on a waiting list to help coordinate if any spots become available.

Mandatory In-person Drivers Meeting will be held at the Starting Chute at 7:15am on Saturday February 3rd at Allatoona Creek Park for Wheeled Classes and a second Driver's Meeting will be mid morning (time TBD and to be announced on FB page) for Canicross and Junior Classes.

For clarification purposes, Registered Breed is defined as AKC/CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) /UKC (or the National Registry from the country of origin) registered Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, or Samoyeds. Teams competing in the Registered Breed classes will be required to show official documentation of each of the registered breed dogs on their competing team. Any breed of dog can race within the All Breed classes, including Northern breeds without official Kennel Club documentation. AKC PAL registrant dogs will not be allowed to race within Registered Breed classes. If you have questions, please ask in advance as we will not be able to move you the day of the race to another class if you forget your documentation or misunderstood the classes.

Canicross is limited to running with one dog.

Each dog is limited to run up to two classes per race day. Whichever dog(s) are on your team for your particular class for Day 1 must be on your team for Day 2. If you are in a 4-dog or 2-dog class, you are welcome to drop one dog as needed. If you drop a dog on Day 1, you will need to also drop the same dog for Day 2. Dogs will be photographed to ensure this requirement is abided and apply any necessary DQs.

Trail distance and trail route for all adult classes are targeted to be 2.5 miles and Juniors and Fun Run will be 2.1 miles. In case of warmer weather, a shorter distance has been defined.

Equipment and Trail Rules will follow the ISDRA standard rules. Equipment not meeting the minimum requirements will result in a default scratch in the Starting Chute. Please make sure you read the rules and reach out in advance to clarify any questions about equipment and trail rules. We can help guide you to what you will need. Race Day is very late to confirm your equipment but feel free to reach out earlier in the day if you have any specific questions and want to double check. Our main goal is to keep the participants and their dogs safe.


Hotels and Restaurants in the area can be found on and the cities to look up are Acworth and Cartersville, Georgia.

A taco food truck and coffee truck will be available on site. Please see the fb event page for menus and details.

Primitive camping is available, so please make sure you pre-register on the site here. We will be coordinating with you for where to set up. Bathrooms are available but no showers. No camper hook ups available either. This is just a simple park with trails. No campfires allowed on site. We will have an additional camping waiver for you to sign.


For additional questions, please reach out to Anna Marmann at or feel free to reach out on FB messenger. A Facebook Event Page has been created and you are welcome to post questions there as well.
