The Oldest All-American Dog Sled Race

February 18, 2022 to February 19, 2022

This year's race will be at Bear Gulch. Because of limited parking, there will be a shuttle from the North Fremont High School parking lot to Bear Gulch.  We do not have a shuttle schedule yet so keep checking this site and our Facebook page.  Hope to see you there.

Due to current snow conditions in town, we will unfortunately have to cancel the town events.  There will not be the snowshoe race, the mutt race or the weight pull unless we get better snow.. 

From 1917 when Tud Kent won the first American Dog Derby during a blinding blizzard to this year’s races, the running of the dogs in Ashton is an exciting event rich in history. There are 5 different races offered and a start/finish line full of activities including a celebrity race, a snowshoe race, and a weight pull in which spectators and their dogs can compete.
