This will be an amazing day for family and friends to spectate and take part! 

The Course:

Country Division: You and your best friend will head up Coronet Express gondola together. You will then need to walk down to the start line which will take 10 minutes. The race will start halfway down the M1 then you will run/slide down the mountain to the finish line. You'll have the extra challenge of sending your dog back up the hill around a gate before calling them back to you at the finish line.

Town/Kids Division: You and your best friend will head up Meadows Express together. You will walk down to the start line on the lower M1 where you will run/slide down towards the finish line.
