Fun Fact!

A fun fact to ask your students, ” How far in front of the musher are the lead dogs in a Copper Dog team?

A fun fact shared by the John Beargrease Sled Dog organization-

In a typical 14 dog hitch such as we use in our marathon race, there would be about 60 feet separating the nose of the lead dog from the musher at the back of the sled.
For our mid-distance teams using eight dogs, the measurement is approximately 35 feet from the nose of the lead dog to the back of the sled.
