Green River Rondy Sled Dog Race Photo Gallery • The Green River Rondy Sled Dog Race was held over New Year’s weekend in the Upper Green, north of Pinedale. The event brought mushers and teams from eight states to compete in the 6-dog and 12-dog races. Mushers raced on both Saturday and Sunday, with the final combined time determining the winner for the $6,000 purse. The 6-dog teams raced a 14-mile course and the 12-dog teams raced a 28-mile course. As a unique aspect of this sled dog race, mushers wore local rancher’s brands on their race bibs instead of the traditional numbers.
