2018 Ethan Howard Memorial Rig Race
November 10, 2018 - November 11, 2018
Our 2018 dryland race will be held November 10th and 11th in Auburn, New Hampshire. There are two changes to note for this year. First, because of logging all classes will run on the 3 mile trail. Second, canicross will be held on Sunday only.
The race will be ISDRA sanctioned. Classes will include:
- 1-2 dog bike and scooter classes (3 miles);
- 4-, 6-, and 8-dog rig classes (3 miles);
- 3-dog junior (3 miles);
- Canicross (3 miles) (Sunday only)
Race fees are as follows: $40 for 8-dog rig (ISDRA fee included); $35 for 4- and 6-dog rig, 1- and 2-dog bike and scooter (ISDRA fee included); $25 for canicross (ISDRA fee included); $10 for 3-dog junior.
Check in for the race will begin at 8 am. Please drop off forms and fees and pick up bibs at this time. There will be NO onsite registration for the race. There will be a mandatory drivers’ meeting at 8:30 am. The first class is slated to start at 9am.
Drivers’ meeting: 8:30 am
1-dog bike: 12:30 pm
2-dog bike: 1:15
1-dog scooter: 1:45
2-dog scooter: 2:30
This schedule is subject to adjustment. On Sunday, canicross will go out before the 8-dog class so this will push events back by approximately one hour.
Breakfast and lunch will be offered for donations—all profits going to Liberty House, a home for veterans in need. Racers and spectators are encouraged to bring sleeping bags, sneakers, backpacks, and non-perishable food items for donation to Liberty House.
The race is held at the Manchester Water Works in Auburn, New Hampshire.
We are the guests of the Manchester Waterworks, please be courteous and respectful of the property and rules. Keep the area around your truck clean and be sure to pick up after your dogs and yourself.
