Racing has been a sport for a long time, whether foot races, animals, or vehicles drawn by animals, motorized vehicles, or aircraft. Distance and speed are factors in races, along with other conditions.
Snow, or lack of it, has been a factor for races in Alaska. Premier sled dog races, both distance and sprint, have been canceled due to light snow conditions. Even the Iditarod is being changed by these conditions.
