HAMILTON/IPSWICH – With warm temperatures and no snow in sight, the New England Sled Dog Races have been postponed from the coming weekend until next month. Originally planned for January 14 & 15, the races have now been moved to February 4 & 5.
Drawing thousands of spectators, the race is organized by the Essex County Trails Association and the New England Sled Dog Club, and drew nearly 80 participants last year. The course route is similar, however, the start and finish line has been moved to the Highland Street parking area of Appleton Farms, home to the annual race.
