[Eniwa Sled Dog Racing] Fluffy Cute Dogs Run Powerfully
Eniwa Sled Dog Racing
Eniwa Sled Dog Racing (恵庭犬ぞり大会) is a winter event in Ecorinvillage (えこりん村), Eniwa city near New Chitose Airport and Sapporo city, and has been held since 2011, and is one of 3 major sled dog racings in Hokkaido. In the Hokkaido, the sled dog racings used to be held in various places, and has taken a hold in International Sled Dog Racing Cup in Wakkanai, Domestic Sled Dog Racing in Asahikawa and the Eniwa. Open period is Saturday and Sunday in early February. A restraunts opens a business at the site, so visitors enjoy dishes. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. By the way, a free shuttle bus runs between the Ecorinvillage and Eniwa Station.
Look of Sled Dog Racing
The race venue is at a ranch covered with snow, and courses are built on the snow. The sled dog racing class distance and number of dogs, and each teams compete on speed. A person called "Musher" controls the dogs, and is important to synchronize dog's timing. When I watched the racing, the dogs became completely exhausted immediately if they did not synchronize the timing. In addition, it is important for the musher to kick up the snowy ground, too. By the way, running dogs in their best looked very cute, and my favorite is a fluffy Siberian husky.
