The competition was first organised in 2009 in order to promote both Băile Tușnad and harmony between Man and Nature. It is aimed at teams of 2, 4 and 6 Nordic dogs.

The race starts at the bottom of the ski slope. Spectators can cheer and take unique photos along the 6,8 and 12 km courses.

The event is put together by several non-governmental organisations in the area and it depends on late January weather and snow falls. If there’s no snow, the competition can turn into a summer sled dog race.
