Kamchatka “Beringia” dog sled race will change the route KXan 36 Daily News

Date: June 5, 2023 Time: 17:11:25

It was announced that the prologue and technical launch of Beringia-2023 will take place on February 25 and 26. The mushers will start their journey from the village of Esso and end in Ust-Kamchatsk. The length of the route will be more than 1425 kilometers.

“Last year, the race ended in the town of Ossora, which can only be reached by air. It was extremely difficult to get ten teams out in a short time at the same time as the cyclone was approaching. To prevent this from happening again, the organizing committee approved a new race route. The start and finish are scheduled in places that are accessible to road transport. Everyone will be able to get there, “said the director of the Kamchatka Tourism and Exhibition Center, Alexander Zhuravlev.

Preparations for Beringia 2023 continue. Only 11 mushers applied to participate.

Recall that last year the first place in the race was taken by the most experienced Valentin Levkovsky, who completed the course in 68 hours and 10 minutes. Mikhail Shelkovin and Andrey Semashkin became the Beringia-2022 silver and bronze medalists. The race began on March 7 and ended on the 24th.
