The Keweenaw Peninsula is one of the most unique geographic features of the Great Lakes region.  "Lake-effect" snow storms contribute to the average 273 inches of snow-fall each year making the CopperDog 150 the perfect choice for a late season, March race.

Pro-class race teams are invited to join the fun and pit their and their team's skills and conditioning against other word-class competitors.  The best ten times take home a piece of the $27,000 race purse.

2018 CopperDog 150 Results

The ninth annual CopperDog 150 saw both excitement, incredible sportsmanship, and a third time winner. Mr. Dennis LaBoda won his third CopperDog 150. Anny Malo, last year's winner, overcame a health issue with one of her sled dogs and a reduced team size, for a come from behind second place finish. Anny was the first musher to arrive at the Stage-3 finish in Calumet on an incredibly bright and sunny day. Ryan Anderson in his first CopperDog 150 was a few minutes behind Anny. Martha Schouweiler, a veteran of several races and a past winner of the CD40 race, placed fourth. Experienced CopperDog participants Jake Golton, Rita Wehseler, JR Anderson, Michael Bestgen, and Greta Thurston rounded out the top ten.
