FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - On a warm January morning, featuring a golden sunrise for a backdrop, the Alaska Dog Mushers Association (ADMA) returned to action Sunday with Preliminary Race #2 at Dog Mushers Hall. 4-dog, 6-dog, 8-dog, Open teams and skijorers took on the Jeff Studdert trails featuring families, veterans and rookies. ADMA competitor Hailey Walton is in her first year as a sprint musher and has had the help of the mushing community to guide her in her rookie season.

“Everybody is super nice, it is just very welcoming and open, it is not anything like I thought it would be,” said Walton prior to Sunday’s event. Sometimes, especially in smaller communities, everybody can be kind of competitive. But no, everybody here is so nice. If you have questions, everybody is willing to help and they don’t mind taking the time to do that.”

Complete results from Sunday’s Preliminary Race #2 can be found below. Preliminary Race #3 is scheduled for January 31.
