Taylor Sled-dog races this weekend


After being postponed earlier in the winter, the 5th annual Taylor Sled-dog races are set to go this weekend (March 21-22).

All races will take at Peace Island Park (4km South of Taylor). Offering a blend of hills, corners, tight forests, and wide-open straight-aways, the edge of the Peace River offers a truly enjoyable course, good for both mushers and spectators.

It should be a nice weekend, with Saturday’s forecast calling for Sunny skies with a high of -5, and Sunday’s forecast calling for light snow with a high of -6.
