So the exciting news for Kennel BlackSummit can now finally be confirmed . . . our team is to take part in the biggest long distance, pure breed sled dog race in Europe - THE POLARDISTANS 2018! Ryan and our four dog team are entered to compete the PD 160 Pulka class. This means they will have to cover a distance of 160km (100 UK miles) to complete the race in the snow. We are extremely proud to be representing Great Britain over in Sweden (6-9th March) where the race is held as one of the few UK kennels that choose to enjoy long distance mushing.

Competing in the PD has been an aspiration for a number of years and is the reason why last season we focused on mid-distance training instead of sprint rallies as we have done in the past. We enjoy spending time out on the trail with our dogs, building a stronger bong with them, overcoming challenges and sharing adventures together. Long distance mushing allows us to do exactly this.

Our blog will be continuously updated with training progress, sponsorship details and look out very soon for an official 'Introduction to the Team.' You can also find us on Facebook to see even more updates and latest news. For more details on the race check out the Polardistans website.

So for now let the ULTIMATE CHALLENGE begin, we will be back very soon with more exciting updates.
