FAIRBANKS — The Alaska Dog Mushers Association says the purse for the GCI Open North American Championship Sled Dog Race will be $25,000.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that the three-day sprint race returns to downtown Fairbanks this year. Last year’s race had to be moved to the Jeff Studdert Racegrounds because of the lack of snow.

Now in its 66th year, the Open North American features 20-mile heats on March 18 and 19 and a 30-mile run on March 20.
