The 2014 Canadian Challenge Sled Dog Race kicked off at noon on Tuesday.
Finally starting in downtown Prince Albert after a few years north of the river due to questionable ice stability, this yearâs event benefited from an ample audience of onlookers who gathered on Central Avenue to send off the teams.
