Bids for participation in the trek, the overall length of which this year will be 1,300 km, have been filed by eleven dog-drivers, among them three women. Each will drive a team of 8 to 14 dogs. The organizers are responsible for matters concerning the provision of place for a rest at each of 18 stages of the dog sled race for both dog-drivers and dogs.
The race will set out on March 1 from the biathlon complex, named after Vitaly Fatyanov, a prominent Russian coach, in a suburb of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The itinerary will run via 21 populated areas where meetings between dog-drivers and local inhabitants will be arranged and various mass activities will take place.
