The 2021 Bogus Creek 150 will now be held on Saturday, January 30th.
Warm temperatures and rain in the days leading up to the race, originally scheduled for this Saturday, January 23rd, have forced the K300 Race Committee to delay the event. Other details for the significantly modified race remain the same.
The 150 will begin on the river in Bethel with a mass start at NOON on Saturday, January 30th. Teams will travel approximately 75 miles in a loop that brings them back to a halfway checkpoint at Hangar Lake in Bethel. After a 4-hour layover, racers will travel the same trail in reverse to the finish line.
Often overshadowed by the Kuskokwim 300, with a purse of $60,000, the Bogus Creek 150 is actually one of the biggest races in all of dog mushing. As a standalone event this year, the "150" has drawn the largest field of racers in many years, including perennial K300 and Akiak Dash contenders. It's sure to be an exciting race!
At this time, 17 teams are registered for the 2021 Bogus Creek 150 (listed below). Registration will now remain open until Thursday, January 28.
