THE SIBERIAN Husky Club of Great Britain held another very successful Aviemore Sled Dog Rally in the Scottish Highlands on 24th and 25th January. With over 230 teams and 1,000 sled dogs taking part the 26th event, the weekend is now one of the biggest gatherings of its kind in the world.
The race is sponsored by Arden Grange and run in conjunction with Forestry Commission Scotland. It attracts over 3,000 spectators and is a welcome boost to the local economy, bringing in over £400,000 to local shops, restaurants and hotels.
Organiser Sarah Robinson said: ‘Mushers and their teams travel from all over the UK to compete in this race, which is considered one of the most challenging and prestigious of the Siberian Husky Club’s series of rallies. We would like to thank Arden Grange for their continued support. It is great to have their knowledgeable and friendly team of representatives at the race every year.’
The Arden Grange team - National Sales Manager, Neal Dobbin; Show Manager, Chris Mellor and Area Managers, Sue Hodgkiss and Jim Millar - have attended every year from the start of their involvement in 2007 and they consider the Aviemore Sled Dog Rally to be an unmissable event.
Neil said: ‘Many of the sled dogs are now fed on Arden Grange and the excellent results are there to be seen. Arden Grange pet foods are hypoallergenic and contain no wheat gluten, dairy products, beef or soya. Nor do they contain any artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives. None of our ingredients are genetically modified.’
Sarah Robinson also thanked the Forestry Commission Scotland for their help. She said: ‘The trails this year were very icy when we arrived and we are very grateful to the Forestry Commission Scotland Team for their non-stop work to ensure the trails were safe for the dogs, mushers and spectators.’
The 27th Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain Aviemore Sled Dog Rally will take place on 23rd and 24th January 2010.
