Get a glimpse of the thrill of high-speed sled dog racing as told by Alaska’s most accomplished sprint racer, George Attla. The Fur Rendezvous Championship Sled Dog Race is considered the most challenging 3-day sprint race in the world. As part of a larger event, the race is held every February in Anchorage, Alaska.
