On Friday, community members and local officials met at Timberland Tours in Bristol for a press conference promoting the upcoming Bristol Dryland Canadian Championship Dog Race.
The race has been running annually since 2010 and attracts hundreds of racers from all over North America and beyond. This year’s race will take place this coming weekend, with events kicking off on Oct. 28 at 9 a.m.
Dryland racing is quite similar to sled dog racing and involves competitors maneuvering wheeled chariots around a packed dirt course pulled by a team of dogs. There are also bikejoring and scooter categories, where racers are pulled on bikes and scooters respectively, as well as canicross, which is cross-country running while harnessed to a canine.
