10th Annual Copper Dog 150
Hey! Let’s organize a sled dog race!
That’s what a small group of people said in 2009, and from that initial idea the CopperDog 150 and CopperDog 40 sled dog races were born.
Both races usually run the first weekend in March. The CopperDog 150 features teams of ten dogs and covers 150 miles in three days, while the CopperDog 40 featured teams of six dogs and covered approximately forty miles in one day. The first weekend in March finds 350+ dogs racing through Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. The race starts in Calumet, MI and travels across the Keweenaw.
