I am taking part in Kalevala sled dog race for the second time. The organizers made a great job. I know that recently it has been snowing heavily; nevertheless, the track is very good.

I am taking part in the Kalevala Race for the first time. To my mind, the track is in an excellent condition. Of course, there are some parts which I would like to make better, but as far as the length of the track is very high I understand that it can’t be perfect. Also for the first time in my life I am in Russia, and I like it very much.

Being not a newcomer in this competition I have to say that the race has improved. This year there are a lot more participants from different countries, moreover the overall number of mushers has increased.

I am really enjoying the “Kalevala” sled dog race; it’s exactly the same I had in mind before. I’ve learned about it from my friends, who happened to be here several years ago. It took us three day to get here on our own trailer.

To tell the truth, I am here for the first time, not taking into account the times of the USSR when I was a child. I like the race very much, the landscapes are fascinating. The most memorable stage was the prolog-race. I was surprised by the attitude of local inhabitants to the foreigners. It’s very pleasant to be so warmly welcomed in a foreign country.

“Kalevala” sled dog race is the major winter season race to me. The rest is only the preparation for it. The track is great. Sometimes we face the snow parts, but mostly it’s alright. For me, as a Moscow-citizen, coming to Kalevala is the joyful chance to have a good rest.

I have already taken part in Kalevala sled dog race. The race of this year turned out to be difficult for me. There is much snow and it was very difficult for the dogs to run, because the skies didn’t slide well.

I’ve learned about the Kalevala race in Kudama, when I was for the first time in Karelia (now it’s my second time here). Together with my wife we came from Tyumen and it took us 4 days to get here. I’ve been specially preparing for this race; nevertheless I realized that the speed of my dogs is not so high as far as they rarely take part in the competitions like that.
