BRISTOL Oct. 28-29, 2017
The soggy weather did little to dampen the spirits of the hundreds of competitors that arrived in Bristol over the weekend for a spectacle of humans and dogs hurtling around a dirt racetrack.
The eighth annual Bristol Dryland Canadian Championship Dog Race is the creation of Timberland Tours owner Denis Rozon. He said that over the years attendance has been climbing steadily and this year’s race brought out close to 300 participants from across the United States and Canada.
The weekend was packed with many different events, with racers being pulled on carts, scooters and bikes by a single dog or team of up to eight. There was also a cani-cross category, which is essentially cross-country running while tied to a canine.
