HELENA  — Organizers of Race To The Sky, one of Montana's longest-running sled dog races, say the event has been canceled for 2021.

The Race To The Sky is held each February, and is run between Lincoln and Seeley Lake.

Organizers said on Facebook Monday that the race has been canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions, and that they were looking forward to racing again in 2022.

Race to the Sky started in 1986 as the Governor’s Cup Sled Dog Race, and commemorates the Camp Rimini War Dog Reception and Training Center, which was set up in advance of the World War II invasion of Norway.
