January 6, 2009

The 2009 Green River Classic Sled Dog Race was held on Saturday & Sunday, January 3rd & 4th on the Bridger-Teton National Forest in the Upper Green River Valley. Mushers from Montana, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and South Dakota came to participate in the race. Twenty mushers raced in the 12-dog event and 18 teams participated in the 6-dog race. Three Junior Mushers competed in the youth event.

BP generously contributed $8,600 for the purse. Many of their employees came and helped out with the event. The Classic had 6-dog and 12-dog races, with the fastest combined time from the two days determining the overall winner of each class. The 6-dog class race was 14 miles/day and had a dual start.

In addition to the adult race, there was a special Junior Musher race for kids 12 years old or younger, using a maximum of three sled dogs. That race was 2-3 miles per day, with a $500 purse, generously donated by Continental Kennel Club.

Racers and spectators endured temperatures around 10 degrees on Saturday and braved -25 degrees F on Sunday.

Jackson, Wyoming, musher Frank Teasley took first place in the 12-dog race. His wife, Stacey, won the 6-dog race with the fastest overall time. In the 6-dog race, locals Emily Wade, of LaBarge, took 8th place and Casey Boulter, of Pinedale, placed 11th. Allison Berge, of Glenrock, Montana, placed 1st in the Junior Musher race.
