The Joe Leclerc 4 dog race is the newest race run at Trappers Festival. Started in 2009, it gives people another chance to see these amazing dogs run.
This race is a one lap race on Friday afternoon. Going out to the graveyard and back it runs in about 25 minutes and is a great chance for the kids to patiently see the same dogs go out and back.
The race was names after Joe Leclerc who was a long time dog musher and winner of the World Championship Race. He was the first winner of the beautiful Labatt’s Championship trophy that is still presented to the winner of the World Championship Dog Race.
