Welcome

Welcome to Tobacco Trail, a long distance sleddog race in the far north of Sweden. The origin of the race goes back to when two warm hearts wanted to share one cold place; sled dog professionals and enthusiasts Birgitta Fernstrom and Taisto Thorneus saw the potential of a race in their home town of Kiruna (famed for its Iron Mine) and Saivomoutka at the Finnish border. For locals, this path is best known for its use during WWII when smugglers would transport tobacco and other contraband goods between the borders, so it’s not hard to see how the race got its name “Tobacco Trail”.

These days, the race focuses around the town of Lannavaara and offers a fun, exciting and friendly competition for all mushers in the following categories:

  • 150km (approx.) for Limited Class (6-8 dogs)
  • 300km (approx.) for Limited Class (8 dogs)
  • 300km (approx.) for Open Class (12-14 dogs)

**Kennel Cough Nasal vaccine no longer mandatory... but it is recommended!**

You talk - we listen! We've had feedback from many mushers that requiring the kennel cough nasal vaccine for our race teams is making participation in the race too difficult. After discussion between the race organisers and consultation with the vets, we have decided that in light of the tough financial situation due to COVID, that we will change this rule to a RECOMMENDATION and it will no longer be mandatory for 2021. The rule may change again for future races.

Please note, the welfare of participating dogs remains our number one priority, and anyone experiencing signs of kennel cough in the week/days running up to the race should not attend. There is of course a mandatory vet check before the race when all dogs will be checked for general health.

We thank everyone who has signed up so far and welcome more people to join them! 🙂
