But a snowy weekend in Thetford saw husky dog owners from around the country taking part in a British Champion race, hosted jointly, by the British Siberian Husky Racing Association (BSHRA) and the Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain (SHCGB) at Thetford Forest.

Unfortunately there wasn't quite enough snow fall to use sleds, so they were replaced by specialist three-wheeled rigs.

Depending on which classification a husky has, the race trails can range from two to six miles.

The races conclude today, February 3.
