The 2014 Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race wrapped up on Sunday.

Nearly 50 sled dog teams from throughout the Midwest participated in the 19th annual race. This year, there was a 10-dog class and a 6-dog class.

The first leg of the race was on Saturday, and the second leg began at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Races wrapped up around 2 p.m.

"With dog sledding, it's a working relationship and you are best friends," said Bob Johnson, one of the mushers competing in the race. "They're not just dogs, they're part of the family."
