New England Sled Dog Races - Chocorua Lake

Sled dog racing has a long tradition in Tamworth. Arthur T. Walden, while living in Wonalancet, developed the iconic Chinook bred, founded the New England Sled Dog Club (NESDC) in 1924, and ran the first sled dog race in the area. In 1928, Walden became the lead dog trainer and driver for Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s expedition to Antarctica. It must have seemed natural for the newly formed Tamworth Outing Club’s executive committee to sponsor and run the TOC’s first sled dog race in March of 1937.

With conditions permitting, the TOC and the NESDC still run this race on the scenic expanse of Chocorua Lake and its surrounding trails. One of the longest-running sprint races in the world, the races are held from 9am to 3pm each day during an early winter weekend.

Many dog teams from New York, Canada, and New England compete in this event. The number of dogs per team varies according to class, which progress from the one-dog juniors to the 14-dog professionals. The biggest teams will compete in the Pinetree Power Classic, starting both days at noon, running an 11-mile course on logging roads and snowmobile trails. Other events include one-, two-, three-, four-, and six-dog races, both amateur and professional, throughout each day.

Admission is free for spectators, who are welcome to watch the teams, talk to drivers, and see the action. The proceeds from our concession trailer with food, hot beverages, and race memorabilia benefit the Tamworth Outing Club. With Mt. Chocorua as a backdrop, this is the most scenic race in the East.

Light the Night IV

 

The Chocorua Community Association presents it's Third Annual Light the Night, on Sunday Jan 20th. The festivities begin at 4:00pm at The Farmstand with an open house, and hot beverages. We'll spark the bonfire next to the dam in the park across the way at 5:00pm, and then move on to Runnels Hall for a pot luck supper at 6:00pm.  Donations to the Chocorua River Dam Park are encouraged, and the pot luck dinner is BYOB.

Also, it takes a village to light the night, so please help us out and give us your tired, bedraggled, shedding Christmas trees, yearning to burn free. You can drop them off on the rte 16 side of the park, we'll have a sign up.  We can also use some hard wood pallets, if you have any.
