The Sled Dog Association of Scotland CSJ Championship Series will take place at Ford West Woods (access from A697 at Milfield – signposted to Kimmerston) on Saturday and Sunday.

This is an exciting spectator sport with the bigger teams often travelling at a speed of 18-20mph – quite a sight when in full flight.
