Video: Training in Wyoming

On Wednesday, Gerry and the team headed out on their last training run before the Eukanuba Stage Stop.

The video above was shot at 9,300 feet elevation, and it looks like the dogs are adjusted well to the altitude (as well as the heat — Yukon dogs don’t do most of their racing at 43ºF).

The minimum length of the hills here seems to be 5 miles, and despite the photo above, it’s hard to find some flat trails.
