Since 1984 Aviemore has hosted its Sled Dog Rally every January. Starting with just a dozen teams, nowadays around 200 sled dog teams compete on tracks in Glenmore Forest Park around Loch Morlich under the shadow of the Cairngorms.
The rally features teams of between two and eight dogs running at up to 20 miles an hour over a gruelling, four-mile track. Arranged by the Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain, the rally is not just open to huskies, but also Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, Greenland dogs and Canadian Eskimo dogs.
The rally still takes part even if there is no snow, utilising a three-wheeled rig that looks like a bike without a seat.
