Hang on tight while you lope along the local kennel trails during the Two Rivers 100, or pull up your hood while mushing on the chilly Chena River during the YQ300, or balance on your sled runners while you watch your dog team navigate the Dazell Gorge during the Iditarod…

You have cheered from the sidelines for years! Now you can also be on the team. So put on your mushing parka… this is YOUR dog team. Are YOU ready to race?

For $100 you will become part of the Red Team with Aliy Zirkle.

  • A Team Membership Certificate with the name of your choice
  • A “Frozen Face Aliy” Bag Tag

As a “Thank You” all team members receive a 2017-18 Red Team Certificate, a ‘Frozen Face Aliy’ bag tag, as well as a mounted dog team placard ~ using the stunning images by Julien Schroder of arctic-mood.com and designed by Jack Hintz. We owe much gratitude to Julien who has allowed us to use his images.

For an extra $15 you can choose the upgraded Red Team Membership and receive a red beanie with your placard. Note: Beanies are not available on their own, you can only get one through the upgraded team membership.

(Find out about the joining the Black Team here!)

The Join the Team program runs on a seasonal basis. We clear the rosters of the Red and Black Team members at the start of each season in October, then add team members to the new season’s list. Team membership packets are sent out starting in November until the end of March.

If you prefer to pay by check you can send it along with your mailing details to: SP Kennel, PO Box 16226, Two Rivers, Alaska 99716. Remember to let us know you team member’s name. If you are purchasing a team membership as a Christmas present we recommend you do so before November 15. Let us know by email if you at: SPKDogLog@gmail.com if you wish us to delay displaying the team member’s name on the roster so we don’t spoil the surprise!

Official Team Certificates change every year to show the season of membership. So Join the Team every year and collect them all!
