2011 GCI Open North American Championship sled dog race

Day two of the ONAC race series has taken place today in downtown Fairbanks with day 3 and the final day happening  tomorrow. The ONAC race is an exciting event each spring in Fairbanks with mushers running their teams down 2nd Ave downtown, onto the Chena River and around the Alaska Dog Musher Assoc. trails via Noyes Slough. The 20 mile race takes mushers around 60 minutes to complete with many mushers running upwards of 14 dogs to a team.

Many more images of the first two days of racing can be viewed in my ONAC album
