With near perfect mushing conditions, the annual Apostle Islands Sled Dog Races are ready to go.

The Bayfield Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Bureau is preparing for the race on the weekend of Feb. 2-3.

The race includes an 80-mile race for eight-dog teams and a 60-mile race for six dog teams. There will also be a 40-mile sportsman race and a family race for the younger racers.

Each year nearly 100 teams participate in this event. The races begin and end at the Town of Bayfield gravel pit located about 12 miles from Bayfield off of Highway 13. Race programs will be available at both the Bayfield Chamber office and the race start. Races begin at 10 a.m. both days.
