ECh/EM Jämijärvi Finland 2024 – new date!

Dear Members, 


IFSS have been informed by the Finnish Sleddog Sports Federation and the Race Organizer that the 2024 ECh/EM Dryland Championship in Jämijärvi, Finland, can’t be organized as planned on the original dates. This is due to an order from Finnish Military Forces about expanding and prolonging their combat training in the area of the championship at the same days, making it impossible to organize the event at the same time. 


Because of this the Finnish Sleddog Sports Federation and the Race Organizer together with IFSS have been working hard to find a new possible date for the ECh/EM Championship and the decision has come to move the race to October 16-20th 2024. 


Unfortunately this date coincides with ICF Championship in Italy. It is not the intention of the IFSS to match both Championships, but in this case due to Force Majeure, it is impossible to organize the IFSS ECh/EM event at any other date. 


IFSS is very sorry for the situation but for the good for our Members and athletes, the decision will be to go ahead with the ECh/EM Dryland Championship on the new dates: 16-20th October 2024. 


Hope to see you all in Jämijärvi, Finland

2025 On-Snow World Championships and World Masters

Vemhån January 28, 2024


Today I am very glad to announce that the 2025 On-Snow World Championship and World Masters; Ski-Dog, Sled Sprint, Mid-Distance and Long-Distance will take place in Røros Norway February 5-12, 2025.

This will be the first time ever in the history of IFSS that all on-snow disciplines will be organized at the same time and at the same venue. 

Røros is a wonderful community located in the Trøndelag county, mid Norway. The inhabitants of Røros still work and live in the characteristic 17th- and 18th-century buildings which have led to its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

IFSS Council and I are looking forward to a fantastic and exciting sleddog event in 2025.

Information about the event will be published, when available, on the IFSS website and on a specific event page as well.
