The SM150 is an early season race with a total mileage of 150 miles. The race format has three 50 mile legs separated by two 5 hour rests stops. The the first leg and the last leg are identical routes that go from Sheep Mountain Lodge to Eureka Lodge (or the reverse.) The middle leg is 50 miles high up in the mountains passes.

The 5 hour rest stops are at Eureka Lodge (mile post 128 Glenn Highway.) The dogs will eat and sleep in straw beds and the mushers will be able to eat and sleep at the Lodge.

Zack Steer, Sheep Mountain Lodge owner, is the Race Marshall. The race course is being marked and readied December 4th.
