would like to announce that the first edition of Metsjövidda Fjällrace is now
history. In this unique long distance sled dog race the mushers and their
huskies covered a distance of 265 km of beautiful mountain terrain. In the three
checkpoints the teams were provided with straw and fresh water. A mandatory rest
of 5 hours had to be taken in the halfway checkpoint where – after feeding and
bedding down the 4-legged athletes – a hot elk-stew was served for the
Fjällrace is an „inofficial“ sled dog race that is organized by Petter Karlsson
and the participation is reserved for Bozita Robur Long Distance Team members
and their supporters.
would like to thank all involved people that made the event a huge success – we
are already looking forward to the next edition!
