    1st Annual 'Royal Canin' Falls Creek Sled Dog Classic 2011

    Please visit the clubs new website for all event details, including entry form, race rules, and information pack at

    In 2011, the 'Royal Canin' Falls Creek Sled Dog Classic is hosting a 2 day race for 2, 3, 4 and 6 dog classes commencing on Saturday, July 30 at 6.30pm and the final run on Sunday, July 31 at 6.30pm.

    Cash, Trophies and Product Prizes awarded to all first to third place class winners and Product Gifts for all participants.

    With a captive audience of well over a thousand spectators, mushers and their dogs will enjoy a atmosphere and challenging trail unlike anything they have ever experienced before.

    This race is quite unique with the race being held throughout the heart of the Alpine Village, on snow, under lights and the night sky. A style of racing seen consistently throughout Europe, but a first for the Australian Sled Dog Racing scene.

    The Falls Creek Sled Dog Classic was born to provide Australian Mushers and their dogs another snow race in the country, in addition to the A5K, to add to their racing calendars. In a country where mushers are limited by environmental conditions and long to run their dogs on snow, they now have the opportunity to do that twice a year.

    The future success of this event is dependent upon the support it receives from the Sled Dog Racing community. The greater support we get, the greater investment Falls Creek and Royal Canin are willing to put in, to promote and support snow sled dog racing further on a national level in the years to come.

    Falls Creek Sled Dog Classic Inc. would like to thank our Major Sponsors in supporting the event - Falls Creek and Royal Canin, and, our Preferred Accommodation and Event Supporter - Quay West Resort & Spa Falls Creek.

    Quay West Resort & Spa Falls Creek is situated at the start and finish lines of the race and across the road from the designated event car park. They have come on-board providing VERY attractive rates for our participants. We are unable to publicly list these rates though as the resort does not want these rates getting out to the public. For those interested in the 'rates' Quay West Resort & Spa Falls Creek is offering please email and they will be forwarded to you direct.

    Please check out the accommodation and services Quay West Resort & Spa Falls Creek has to offer our participants on our accommodation page of the website and consider them as your first option for accommodation over the race weekend.

    On Monday, 18 April 2011 Quay West Resort & Spa Falls Creek will be issuing Falls Creek Sled Dog Classic Inc. with an Event Access Code for our participants, their families and support teams to use when making their booking with them. Please keep an eye out on the website on Monday to get this Access Code.
    The club will also post this code to the lists.

    We thank all our participants in advance who will be entering and supporting this event and hope you enjoy your racing at Falls Creek. Remember we don’t have many opportunities in which to run our dogs on snow…lets ensure we can keep two snow races running annually with your support.

    Look forward to seeing you at Falls Creek.
