POLARDISTANS 160KM START LINE

Updated: Jun 21, 2018

So after nearly 18 months of planning and training to participate in the race, Kennel BlackSummit made it to the start line and at 13.30 6th March the dogs and Ryan cleared the start chute and crossed the lake with great success! Onto their adventure with the 160km that lay ahead of them. We must say a big thank you to the countless supporters we had on the start from nationalities all over the world - the long distance mushing community is fantastic! So many friends and photographers captured our team in action, here is a small selection of videos and photos of them beginning their adventure.
