The Dog Powered Sports Association of the Yukon (DPSAY) hosted their first summer dryland race on Sunday.

They were trying something different, holding it in the morning for the cooler, comfortable temperatures for the dogs and athletes, and for the first time at the Annie Lake Wilderness Golf Course.

There was a large field of eleven people enjoying the canicross, bikejouring and scootering.

According to Katherine Scheck, it was great to see new faces out there and it was a fun, open and inclusive recreational event.
