The Race

We want to give special recognition to the organizers of Flathead Sled Dog Days, which brought 5 great years of Dog-Powered Sports to the Flathead Valley.  

We’re excited to move forward with your insights and your dreams in the form of dog-powered, adrenaline pumping, snow slinging MUSHING.

Give your dogs a stomach scratch, a pat on the head, and we’ll see you on the trails. Cheers to the past, present, and future years of Mushing in Northwest Montana!


Our main event, The FLATHEAD CLASSIC sled dog race is a multi-class, multi-sport race, scheduled this season for February 25th and 26th, 2017.

Our 2016 event was cancelled due to poor trail conditions, but we are thrilled to be back on the calendar for 2017!

Events that took place in the 2015 Flathead Classic  included 1 and 2 dog Skijoring; 4 and 6 dog sprint and short distance classes as well as a special pure breed class.

Our local businesses contributed to the fun with a "mutt pull" sponsored by Tailwaggers, where local dog owners could try their own talents at mushing by using their own one-dog team with provided gear from Adanac Sleds & Equipment.  With incredible support from our business sponsors, we were able to offer a decent purse for top competitors and wide selection of prizes.

Thanks to all who attended and we look forward to seeing you at our next race!
