COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA December 29, 2019 (LSN) Experience sled-dog racing as an insider--volunteer! Take home memories with you and your family that will last a lifetime. When trying to uncover the mystery of the bold north, there is no greater opportunity for discovery than to watch a live sled dog race.
The strong and proud work of these pups will floor you, only paling in comparison to the dedication of each musher to their team. Regain child-like wonderment, and bring yourself north to enjoy the snow with man’s-best-friend. The Gunflint Mail Run (GMR) Sled Dog Race is scheduled for Friday, Jan 10 – Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020 on the Gunflint Trail north of Grand Marais, Minn., drawing local and world-class mushers and their sled dog teams from across the continent. The event is open for public spectators, and, as an added bonus, the event is inviting volunteers for a variety of opportunities, ranging from no previous experience to some with specific experience.
The Gunflint Mail Run Sled Dog Race is a continuous race consisting of two legs of equal distance, separated by a mandatory layover. There are two classes in the race: a 12-dog, 100-mile race and an 8-dog, 65-mile race. Races will start and finish at Trail Center Lodge on the Gunflint Trail.
