Arctic Circle Sleddog Expedition
How to follow
For this expedition there will be some rules in place to ensure the safety of all dogs and people. All teams will have to carry the mandatory gear like they would need for the Finnmarksløpet and maps that cover the whole area they will be driving through. To ensure that the teams stay a bit together in the beginning, they are not allowed to leave the lake about 3km north of Vuoggatjålme before 18.00 Friday evening. Between Vuoggatjålme 1 and the finish line there is 10h of mandatory rest that needs to be taken. This rest can be taken in the checkpoints, but also camping out on the trail. To ensure that every team took all their mandatory rest, everyone will need to reset their GPS at the restart in Vuoggatjålme 1, and when arriving in Slussfors it has to show a minimum of 10h stopped time. In either Vuoggatjålme 1 or Vuoggatjålme 2 a veterinarian will check out every dog in each team.
