2011 marks the 50th year of sled dog racing in Oregon. There’s an annual event that will be celebrating this milestone. It's a combination of excited dogs and excited mushers.  The 17th Annual Chemult Sled Dog Races is slated for January 15th and 16th. "Well, it's an event that we have mushers come from several states around to compete against each other with teams of sled dogs. And that could be anywhere from four dogs to eight. And they could run a course starting at only a couple miles up to 16 miles." Spokesperson Erin Sutton says it's quite a festive atmosphere, with a variety of races for all ages including skijoring. "That’s a fun one. That’s usually a skier on skis with wither one or two dogs pulling them on a course." Sutton says races begin at 8:30 each morning and conclude around mid-afternoon at the Walt Haring Sno-park.  She says a couple hundred people come just to watch and many ski along side the competitors or snowshoe around the area.
