It might have been chilly for most people to venture out at the weekend but the temperatures were ideal for these huskies to race.

The Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain held its annual race for the Midlands at Fineshade Woods on Saturday and Sunday and 45 teams competed with teams of either two, three, four or six dogs in four classes.

The event was reinstated last year after a break and organisers hope it will grow every year.

Organiser Rob Pinsent said it was a fantastic spectacle for passers-by, while being a fun event for participants who had to use a wheeled rig due to the lack of snow.
