Welcome to the International Scandinavian Stage Race 2016

The International Scandinavian Stage Race is a 200km Sleddog Stage race run over four stages in the mountains of Swedish Lapland.
Race dates are 25/26/27/28 February 2016.
Race will consist of four stages of 30km/42km/48km/23km.
Trail types will vary from fast, groomed sprint trail to high mountain trail.


We have tried to cover most bases in the format of the race & the rules for the event. ISSR has two basic goals: To have a safe, fair and ethical event for the dogs, and to have an exciting, safe and competitive event for the mushers. We understand that the format of the race may not suit every team but we will do our utmost to make this an enjoyable event for both the competitive teams as well as those who wish to see some new country, some awesome mountain scenery and have a great new adventure with their dogs.


Important news items and events will be posted here and also on our event Facebook page .
Once we have snow on the ground, we will also be posting regular trail condition reports for the trails and surrounding area trail systems for Mushers wishing to train in the area.
Actually timetable!
Results stage 1 – 4
