Gunflint Mail Run

Gunflint Mail Run

Winners of 12-dog and 8-dog races

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA January 13, 2020  (LSN) The Gunflint Mail Run kicked off the start of the dog-sled racing season in Cook County this weekend. The original event, which is a 12-dog, 100-mile race included two runs, approximately 50 miles each, over a two-day stretch, and an eight-dog shorter and faster race (65 miles).

The race started and finished at Trail Center Lodge, 7611 Gunflint Trail, on Poplar Lake, Grand Marais, Minn.  (Trail Center Lodge is approximately 30 miles up the Gunflint Trail). 

According to race director Sarah Hamilton of Trail Center Lodge, “the cold weather made the race particularly fast – many of the teams were a half an hour faster than their times last year, which was much warmer. All the teams completed the first leg of the race and were in for their rest stop by 12:30 a.m.  Some years they are out as late as 3:30 a.m.” Cathy Quinn, volunteer coordinator, reported that more than 70 volunteers participated in this year’s race.
