Information about the Event:

Spectacular sporting performances and exciting competitions can be expected at the Sled Dog World Championships in Sportgastein.

There will be a touch of Alaska in the air when the world elite in sled dog sport meet in snow-sure Sportgastein for the World Championships from 29 February to 3 March. Hundreds of sled dogs will be howling excitedly at the start of the middle-distance and sprint races, creating an atmospheric soundscape for this top event.

The World Championship weekend is also the World Cup final for the current race series.


Up to 150 competitors from around 20 nations will take part in the World Championships in Gastein!


Spectators will be up close and personal with free admission directly on the course. In the teams' paddock, the "Stake-Out", you can look over the shoulders of the mushers as they prepare, care for the sled dogs, wax the skis and harness them. Spectator dogs may not be taken into the Stake-Out. The start and finish area is located in front of the Valeriehaus, where you can admire spectacular starts and cheer on the athletes as they cross the finish line.
