Skijoring (2 dogs) 440 km
I’ve been doing sport tourism since 2004: orienteering, multi-race, mountain hiking, skiing, speleology, bycicle touring trips. I started mushing in 2009, when I came to kennel “King’s pride”, and got my first dogs – Shana and Molly. I participated in Northern Hope race with them in 2011. This race was a kind of a push for me to start doing mushing. Now I participate in competitions, mainly skijoring, middle and long distances. In December 2012 during the race “Silver Boat” I tried mushing for the first time, participating in Sleddog discipline with 6 dogs for 20 km distance. Participating in KALEVALA race is my dream, which seems to come true!
